NIBS also named two recipients of the Betty and Mort Marshall Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship was established to promote diversity in the building sciences and benefit students pursuing a career in architecture and engineering at a historically Black college or university (HBCU). The scholarship was started in 2020, in memory of the Marshalls. Mort was the first member of the National Institute of Building Sciences.

The 2024 scholarship recipients are Christin Williams, an architecture student with Florida A&M University, and Damario Berry, a civil and environmental engineering student with Howard University. Each student will receive $5,000 toward their tuition.
