The Society considers itself to be a successor of the Estonian Female Student's Society (Eesti Naisüliõpilaste Selts, abbrev ENÜS) established in Estonia in 1911, officially in 1919) and was founded in the US by the exiled members of the aforenamed organization; every female student with Estonian origin could become a member of the society. The objective of the society was to join Estonian women with higher education to support them to further and maintain their Estonian identity and to enable them to become beneficial members of the society.
