During the first three years of the Fund’s activities about 300 participants from the CIS and the Baltic States, Eastern and Southern Europe became alumni of the Fund’s research and educational programs. Many of them continue to maintain close relationship with the Fund supporting its cooperation with non-governmental organizations and universities in their countries within the framework of the programs.
In 2013 a decision was made to create a Club of Friends of the Gorchakov Fund and invite the most active young participants of the research and educational programs for cooperation. Creation of the Club drew a conclusion to the work of the most active alumni of the Fund’s programs as well as partners of the Club thanks to whose efforts and support roundtables, presentations and other events were organized on various Russian and foreign platforms.
The first meeting took place on October 29 – November 2, 2013.
