Meet the 2022 APSA Bunche Summer Program Scholars

APSA is pleased to announce the 2022 Ralph Bunche Summer Institute (RBSI) Class. This year, 14 undergraduate students will participate in the annual, intensive five-week program hosted by Duke University. The 2022 institute will be held May 29 – June 30, 2022, under the direction of  Dr. Paula D. McClain.

RBSI is designed to introduce to the world of doctoral study in political science those undergraduate students from under-represented racial and ethnic groups or those interested in broadening participation in political science and pursuing scholarship on issues affecting underrepresented groups or issues of tribal sovereignty and governance.

This is the 36th year of the RBSI program. Named in honor of the 1950 Nobel Peace Prize winner, former APSA President, and the first African American to receive a PhD in political science, Dr. Ralph J. Bunche, the Ralph Bunche Summer Institute (RBSI) encourages students to pursue academic careers in political science. Congratulations to the RBSI Class of 2022!
