“Benjamin Moore & Co. and the GIVING MOORE Foundation are committed to supporting education initiatives for students of interior design and architecture,” said Mike Searles, CEO of Benjamin Moore & Co. and Chairman of GIVING MOORE. “We are thrilled to partner once again with The American Institute of Architects Foundation and fund the Diversity Advancement Scholarship program. We look forward to seeing all that these students bring from their diverse backgrounds to a field that is changing the landscape of North America.”
“The American Institute of Architects Foundation is grateful for the support of GIVING MOORE in funding the Diversity Advancement Scholarships,” said Jeff Potter, Foundation Board President of the Fellowship in the American Institute of Architects. “The program was launched in 1970 and it is because of partners like GIVING MOORE that we have been able to provide 2,300 minority architectural students with financial assistance over the last 46 years.”
For the second year, GIVING MOORE has supported three Diversity Advancement Scholarship recipients. Additionally, GIVING MOORE is continuing its support of the 2015 winners and they will be provided financial assistance throughout the remaining time in their current five-year programs.
