Minorities planning to embark on careers in architecture may be eligible for a scholarship being offered by the American Institute of Architects Foundation and Giving Moore, a foundation arm of Benjamin Moore & Co.

The Montvale, New Jersey-based paint manufacturer and the AIA Foundation announced the 2017 Diversity Advancement Scholarship Program in November; however, applications are due Jan. 25.

Two students will be selected to receive $5,000 each in 2017 and an additional $5,000 each per year up to five years of their undergraduate architectural studies.

This is the second year Giving Moore has helped fund the scholarship program.

Qualified high school seniors planning to attend school for architecture and first-year college students currently enrolled in a NAAB-accredited architecture program are encouraged to apply. Applicants must have a minimum 3.0 GPA and will be required to provide two examples of their creative work, high school transcripts, a personal essay and two letters of recommendation, among other requirements. Additional details are available here.

Winners will be announced in April.

"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 AIA.

"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."

This is the second year Giving Moore has helped fund the scholarship program.
