The Bermuda Principles Foundation Fund is a non-profit initiative. It was established in May 2016 to facilitate programs that benefit the Bermuda community, especially its youth. The Foundation's goal is to increase scientific outreach in Bermuda, to expand science-based opportunities in Bermuda and to foster academic excellence. We aim to inspire the next generation of Bermudians scientists to fulfil their potential and embrace careers in healthcare and science.
Our efforts are led by Dr. Carika Weldon, a Bermudian biochemist, who both established and facilitated the creation of the programs that benefit Bermuda's community. Our initiatives include the annual 'Science With Scientists' school tour which brings genetic hands-on workshops to children age 11-18. Bermuda's top science students also have the opportunity to learn about research directly from renowned and leading scientists, and interact with during our annual international Bermuda Principles Impact Conference which plays host to the Bermuda's Youth Parliament Science Ethics Debate, a multi-collaborative Health Education Fair.
