We are extremely happy with the continued success we have been having with our newfound collaboration between Architect-US and Fundación Arquia (The Arquia Foundation). In the past month, we have been able to find exciting placements for candidates in prestigious firms around New York City. None other than two of the most renowned practices in the city; Diller Scofidio + Renfro and OMA. An opportunity that will bring a life-changing experience to promising architects looking to gain experience from the most demanded and ground-breaking offices in the United States.

Just like Architect-US, the Arquia Foundation shares the same values and objectives as us, and that is the dissemination of cultural, social, professional, and educational projects embodied in the architectural field. Now that the foundation is celebrating their XXI anniversary, they have decided to now -for the first time ever- provide scholarships outside Europe. Creating a great opportunity for these two organizations to work together to reach out to more aspiring architects and provide them with more and more opportunities to gain professional experience outside their home countries. That is whilst helping them in their personal and professional development across the different disciplines involved in the field of Architecture, and what better city than New York? Possibly one of the richest cities in the US for innovative and prominent advances in the architecture and design space.
For those interested in these opportunities, you should know that Architect-US’ involvement will be with the incorporation of your placement in the American firm, the processes of the official paperwork of the J1 Visa, medical insurance and all the official documentation required by the Department of American State to legally work in the US. Therefore, reducing all the stress related with the red tape and giving you the best guidance and information to ensure a valuable work experience. Accordingly, those interested and working towards getting a scholarship from the Arquia foundation have to make sure that they fit all the important requisites regarding eligibility.
