NIBS also named two recipients of the Betty and Mort Marshall Memorial Scholarship, which 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. The scholarship was started in 2020, in memory of the Marshalls. Mort was the first member of the National Institute of Building Sciences.

The 2022 scholarship recipients are Jose Portillo, a civil engineering student at Tennessee State University, and McKenzie Cleveland, an architecture student at Hampton University. Each student will receive $5,000 toward their tuition.
