Jared Andrus

Graduate Research Fellow


Jared Andrus is a Graduate Research Fellow at the Center for Growth and Opportunity at Utah State University. He is pursuing a Masters of Science in Financial Economics, with expected graduation in Spring 2024.

Jared’s research focus with the CGO is technology. He joined the organization because of a shared goal: to bring positive change to the world.

One idea he would like to share with the world is if everyone understood philosophy—what’s real, how we know things, and what it means—it would make the world better. We need to find and embrace philosophy because it affects everything.

After graduation, Jared is considering pursuing a PhD.

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.
