Benjamin Hill

Undergraduate Research Fellow


Ben Hill is an Undergraduate Research Fellow at the Center for Growth and Opportunity at Utah State University. He’s studying Economics with an expected graduation date in Spring 2025. His research at the CGO focuses on tax policy. He joined the CGO to put his economics education into practice in a work environment.

One important fact Ben would share with the world is about basketball. Michael Jordan missed 26 game winning shots in his career and he is considered the best ever at his craft. This should motivate people to keep pushing after failure.

Following graduation, Ben would love to help run a professional baseball team.

About Student Research Fellowships

Undergraduate 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, undergraduate 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.
