The Banneker Institute is taking a break for the 2021 summer program until we can meet safely again in person. Please contact banneker@cfa.harvard.edu with any questions or concerns.

Stay safe and healthy!


Banneker Institute summer program is a ten-week research and study experience. We prepare undergraduate students of color for graduate programs in astronomy, focusing on research, graduate coursework, and social science education.
