One of Peter and Ernst Neufert's objectives was to promote the apprenticeship of young people.

The foundation awards scholarships to architecture students annually and additionally organises exhibitions and events in the Neufert Box in the garden of the Neufert House.

More than 30 students have been supported since 2007

All architecture, urban development and landscape architecture students, graduating from a German university, who are planning to continue with their Masters programme abroad are eligible for the scholarship. Additionally, international students with a Bachelor degree (or country equivalent) may apply for the scholarship if they intend to start and complete a Masters programme in Germany.
