Ralph Bunche Summer Institute Deadline 1/20

The deadline for applying to the 2010 Ralph Bunche Summer Institute (RBSI) is January 20, 2010 (postmarked).

The RBSI Program, under the direction of Dr. Paula McClain of Duke University, will be held at Duke University May 30 - July 1, 2010.

The Ralph Bunche Summer Institute is a 5-week, academically intensive summer program designed to simulate the graduate school experience, provide mentoring, and expand academic opportunities. The Ralph Bunche Summer Institute targets students from racial/ethnic groups that are significantly underrepresented in science in the United States, e.g. African American, Latino/a, Native American, and Pacific Island students. All students who are members of these groups, or who are interested in broadening participation in political science by students from underrepresented minority populations and pursuing scholarship on issues affecting under-represented groups, are eligible to apply.

Applications: 2010 RBSI Applications and additional eligibility requirements can be found online at www.apsanet.org/rbsi.

Questions: Please direct any questions about the program to Shaunda Ragland, sragland@apsanet.org, or call 202-483-2512.
