CGO Graduate Research Fellowship

The CGO Graduate Research Fellowship  is a research program that provides tuition scholarships for students pursuing a master’s degree in economics (MSE, MSFE, MDATA).

Throughout their fellowship experience, CGO graduate research fellows have the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects and are fully immersed in the CGO research process, from conducting background research, writing and editing, to advanced quantitative analysis. CGO fellows work with other USU scholars, staff members, and external partners, to craft interesting, timely, and policy-relevant research that has the power to transform lives.

CGO Fellows also take on leadership responsibilities, hold reading discussions and engage in professional development workshops. This program is the ideal setting for students to prepare for advanced academic pursuits and careers.

CGO graduate research fellowships begin in August and conclude the last day of the following spring semester. CGO fellowships can be renewed until the completion of the required courses for a student’s degree.
