In 2010, the fellowship holders supported so far founded the Estonian Alumni Association to ensure continuous contact among current and former fellowship holders and to build up a network of environmental experts.

The Alumni Association actively participates in the promotion of the fellowship programme in Estonia, helps or supports the candidates with their application, gives important information and tips for the stay abroad and is represented at the introductory seminar. With the support of the DBU, the Estonian Alumni Association, together with the Latvian and Lithuanian Alumni Associations, organizes an annual Baltic Alumni meeting as well as national and international workshops. Contact person is Tönis Kattel.
