Since 2001, there is an association of former Polish fellowship holders - Stowarzyszenie Srodowisko dla Srodowiska (SdS) in Poland. The SdS supports the DBU in announcing the programme and selecting suitable fellowship holders. It helps to consolidate the network of current and former fellowship holders and to strengthen the contacts between Germans and Poles. Together with the DBU, the SdS also contributes to a socially fruitful climate between Germany and Poland.
In addition to numerous small events, the SdS organizes an annual alumni meeting and a certificate ceremony for new fellowship holders.

Here you can find some sample fellowships:
