The Generation to Generation Campaign for the Ralph J. Bunche Fund seeks to foster diversity and inclusion in the discipline and secure the long-term needs of the Ralph Bunche Summer Institute.
The Ralph Bunche Summer Institute (RBSI) is an annual, intensive five-week program that introduces the world of doctoral study in political science to undergraduate students from under-represented racial and ethnic groups.
Every year, the summer Institute delivers graduate-level coursework in research methodology, and racial and ethnic politics, and the opportunity for rising college seniors to learn and form long-lasting connections with peers.
Our goal is to sustain the RBSI for generations of students to come who will contribute a diverse collection of innovative ideas and approaches to the political science community, as well as other academic and professional fields, by raising $2.5 Million for an endowed fund that will last into the foreseeable future.
APSA provided an initial contribution, and with thanks to the generosity of grateful program alumni, members of the political science community, and other sources of support, we have raised nearly 75% of the funding target.
Please join us in fully securing the Ralph Bunche Summer Institute with a gift.
Your donation is an investment in future generations of students and scholars and serves as the enduring gift of education for those who follow in your footsteps.
Annual gifts help us live. Capital gifts help us grow.
We hope you will remember that the needs of the Annual Fund remain the same even when the Generation to Generation Campaign is in full swing. It is our hope that everyone will be able to participate in both to whatever extent possible.
