The German Development Institute maintains contact with the graduates of the programme: former participants receive a DIE-Newsletter and can refer to a list with all graduates and their professional activity (institution and country of deployment).

Furthermore, there is a closed Facebook-group called “DIE Postgraduierten-Programm” that is managed by current and former participants. All Alumni are very welcomed to join the group and exchange information, connect and stay current. 

Every one to two years the German Development Institute arranges a meeting for all Alumni. This gives the opportunity to socialize and discuss current development issues.
