ROSWELL — A Roswell teen was awarded $10,000 by the Davidson Fellows Scholarship Program. The Milton High School graduate was one of only 20 students across the country to be recognized as a 2021 scholarship winner, according to a news release.

Priya Soneji , 18, won the scholarship for her project, “Autonomously Tracking Organisms in Three Axes at Microscopic Resolution.” She developed a new microscope technology which will allow students to conduct research on organisms and behaviors. Soneji will attend Georgia Institute of Technology in the fall to study mechanical engineering.

“Being named a Davidson Fellow is such a huge honor for me,” Soneji said in a statement. “I am excited to join this wonderful community of brilliant scholars.”

“The 2021 Davidson Fellows Scholarship recipients have risen the challenges of a global pandemic to complete significant projects within their fields of study,” said Bob Davidson, founder of the Davidson Institute in a statement. “To be awarded this recognition, these students have shown immense skill and work ethic, and they should be commended as they continue their educational and research journeys while continuing to work to solve some of the world’s most vexing problems.”
