About the RBSI Program

The 2021 Ralph Bunche Summer Institute (RBSI) is for undergraduate juniors interested in pursuing a graduate degree in political science. The program will be held over five weeks at Duke University in summer 2021.

RBSI introduces the world of doctoral study to undergraduate students from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups. The program is also open to those interested in broadening participation in political science and pursuing scholarship on issues affecting underrepresented groups or issues of tribal sovereignty and governance.
