BGRI's faculty members have initiated, founded, and currently lead two academic programs in the field: an undergraduate program in Israel Studies at the Ben-Gurion University's Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, and the Woodman-Scheller Israel Studies International Program (WSISIP). BRGI also hosts doctoral and post-doctoral students from Israel and abroad.   

Under the guidance of the leading scholars from BGRI, the seminar participants will have an opportunity to explore the Ben-Gurion Heritage Institute, the Ben-Gurion Desert Home and the gravesite of David and Paula Ben-Gurion at Midreshet Ben-Gurion.
