The Bermuda 100 Challenge launched in March 2017 will document at least 100 shipwreck sites and natural habitats in the waters surrounding Bermuda. UC San Diego researchers from the Center of Interdisciplinary Science for Art, Architecture and Archaeology (CISA3) and Cultural Heritage Engineering and Innovation Initiative (CHEI) will collaborate with Bermuda authorities including the Custodian of Historic Wrecks and make the growing digital archive, including 3D video reconstructions and interactive computer models, available online to the public worldwide. To that end, donors are invited to give directly to the Bermuda 100 Expedition Fund and to provide support for this ambitious campaign to document at least 100 ships, artifacts and culturally significant sites in Bermuda.

Your investment in the Bermuda 100 Expedition Fund advances new methods of discovery and preservation of our marine cultural heritage for future generations. All philanthropic gifts – 100% – will be directed to:

  • Supporting graduate students through exploration and expedition fellowships to work on the Bermuda 100 Challenge;
  • Creating research opportunities to do field and lab work, as well as hands-on experience using advanced technologies to document and study Bermuda’s cultural patrimony; and
  • Providing flexible funding to meet the greatest needs for innovation and discovery through cultural heritage engineering.

For more information on giving to the Bermuda 100 project or UC San Diego’s other pioneering efforts in cultural heritage engineering, please contact Adrienne M. Bolli, Director of Development, at 858-822-6968 or



Your gift at any level will be meaningful. Gifts play an important role in keeping our university in the forefront of academic and research excellence. Even modest contributions, pooled with gifts from others, can achieve big results and begin a lifetime of philanthropy with impact.
