Generation to Generation for the Ralph J. Bunche Fund seeks to foster diversity and inclusion in the discpline and secure long-term needs.
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 raise $2.5 Million to sustain the RBSI for generations of students who will contribute a diverse collection of innovative ideas and approaches to the political science community, as well as other academic and professional fields.
APSA is contributing $1.25 Million to support this effort and is seeking another $1.25 Million in private funding from individuals, foundations, and corporations to support this effort.
Join us in securing the Ralph Bunche Summer Institute. An astounding $1.8 Million has been raised from grateful program alumni and APSA members so far.
By investing in the next generations of students and scholars, your financial gift 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.
