Dunwoody High's Mallory Harris and Maddie Dill Selected as UGA Foundation Fellows

Congratulations to Dunwoody High students Mallory Harris and Maddie Dill!  They were selected as UGA Foundation Fellows – the University of Georgia’s premier undergraduate scholarship program.

Founded in 1972 by The University of Georgia Foundation’s trustees, the Foundation Fellows Program is the university’s foremost undergraduate scholarship, placing students in a community of similarly dedicated scholars, offering a stipend that approximates the cost of attendance, a post-first-year Maymester study abroad program, individual travel-study grants, group travel-study opportunities each spring, research and academic conference grants, dinner seminars with some of the university’s best minds, and a mentoring plan that matches Fellows with professors who share their interests.

The following information is courtesy of the UGA Foundation Fellow Facebook page:

“We have another new Fellow to announce! Maddie Dill is student body president, editor-in-chief of the yearbook, and a three-sport varsity athlete at Dunwoody High School. She devotes her time to bettering her community through serving on advisory boards for several international nonprofits. Through travel and mission work, Maddie has witnessed the vast medical disparities that exist, and she plans to work in the global health field to bridge this gap and offer hope to underserved populations.”

“As if hearing Charlayne Hunter-Gault's charter lecture on Nelson Mandela this morning wasn't enough excitement -- we also heard great news from a new Fellow, Mallory Harris!

Mallory Harris attends Dunwoody High School, where she is president of the school’s chapters of the Math National Honor Society and the Harry Potter Alliance. She volunteers at Emory’s Department of Neurology. Mallory led a team of writers as senior staff at Wizarding Life Networks, an online magazine inspired by the Harry Potter series. She intends to study Applied Mathematics and Neuroscience and become a medical researcher.


  1. Congratulations to these two remarkable young ladies!

  2. To have one Fellow in the class of 2014 is fantastic, but for a school to have 2 Fellows is amazing. Congrats to these outstanding young ladies, I can't wait to see what you both achieve at UGA.
