Barna Bose

Graduate Research Fellow


Barna Bose is a Graduate Research Fellow at the Center of Growth and Opportunity at Utah State University. She is studying Economics with an expected graduation date of Spring of 2024.

About Student Research Fellowships

Research Fellows at the Center for Growth and Opportunity work alongside CGO’s research staff and a worldwide network of scholars. Our fellows are integral components to the Center’s research process.

During their fellowships, graduate students have the opportunity to write independently as well as contribute to ongoing research. Students are guided through the research process as they help answer questions related to technology and innovation, environmental stewardship, immigration, and tax policy. CGO fellows are encouraged to share their research at academic conferences, poster exhibitions, and symposiums. Our fellows also work with the Center’s outreach team to get their research to the right people, at the right time in order to make real changes in the world.
