International students interested in pursuing a master’s degree in architecture can apply for Neufert-Foundation Scholarships. The Neufert-Foundation awards scholarships to students pursuing a master’s degree in architecture, landscaping, or urban development after completing their bachelor’s degree.
The Neufert-Foundation is dedicated to preserving Prof. Ernst Neufert’s cultural and architectural legacy. The Bauentwurfslehre was written by Ernst Neufert, a Bauhaus student who traveled extensively to gain experiences and learn more about architecture. Ernst Neufert’s wide and internationally famous work was shaped by his study abroad. As a result, the foundation wants to assist young architects in gathering their own worldwide experiences.
The scholarship is open to all architecture, landscape, and urban development students who have completed their Bachelor’s degree at a German institution and are starting a Masters program at an international university.
If they are starting a Masters program at a German university, international students of architecture, landscaping, and urban development who have completed their studies abroad with a Bachelor degree, diploma, or similar academic degree may also apply.

About the Scholarship:

In 1914, Ernst Neufert started an apprenticeship as a mason, which he finished by passing the apprenticeship certification exam. In 1918, he took an exam at the Weimar School of Construction and worked for the Hannack & Ludwig company in Magdeburg. Neufert was one among the original students at the Bauhaus in Weimar, which began in 1919. He worked at Walter Gropius and Adolf Meyer’s private architecture practice from the beginning until the winter semester of 1920. Neufert went to Spain to study alongside two other Bauhäuslers during the summer semester of 1921. He had a pivotal interaction with Antoni Gaud and worked at Ricardo Magdalena’s architecture firm, among other things.
Ernst Neufert, a Bauhaus graduate, published the first edition of his landmark work Bau-Entwurfslehre in 1936. The encyclopedic collection, which was one of the most successful architecture books to date, provided dimensioned floor designs for architectural projects ranging from bunkers to dog kennels to Zeppelins. Two years later, Neufert began working as a “norm expert” for Reichsminister Albert Speer, with whom he co-authored the Bauordnungslehre manual in 1943. The volume subjected building blocks, bricks, and human bodies to Neufert’s all-encompassing octametric system in order to offer a holistic system of measures for architecture as a whole.

Neufert’s published manuals are attracting more scholarly attention, both for their widespread impact on architectural production (which has previously been primarily examined through the influence of the so-called avant-gardes) and, more recently, for their charged political implications, which have surfaced after long-held assumptions of standardization as a technology supposedly free of ideology. Footnote8 Because, as architecture historian Nader Vossoughian has shown, ‘technical standards also serve a normalizing function’ in society, standardization efforts for the building industry proved a resilient platform for changing political ideologies in three different political systems in twentieth-century Germany.
Neufert’s most influential work, Architects’ Data, originally published in 1936, must be considered his most influential work. It has been published in 39 editions in Germany alone, with several changes. It was not until 1943 that it received its practical element, the Theory of Building Regulations. The Abbeanum and the Student House in Jena (1929–1930), the Ledigenwohnheim apartment building on the Mathildenhöhe in Darmstadt (1952–1955), the main plant of the Eternit company in Leimen (1954–1960), and the Quelle mail-order firm in Nuremberg (1955–1958) are some of the architect’s most important practical works.
