Two San Diego teens have been named Davidson Fellows — winners of $25,000 scholarships for completing significant projects that have the potential to benefit society in the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics, literature or music.

Among the 20 national honorees are Jessie Gan, 16, of San Diego Jewish Academy in Torrey View Estates and Emily Tianshi, 16, of The Cambridge School in Rancho Peñasquitos.

The virtual 2020 Davidson Fellows Scholarship Ceremony was Sept. 30 and can be viewed here.

“I’m extremely grateful to the Davidson Institute and truly honored to have been selected as a Davidson Fellow,” said Gan, a senior. “It represents that my work is being recognized and given a platform, which can lead to it making a difference in the world, every scientists’ dream.”
