Kylie Kelly

Former Graduate Research Fellow


Kylie graduated with her Masters of Financial Economics in Spring 2023. She completed her undergraduate degree in Economics in 2021.

At the CGO, Kylie focuses her research on technology. She joined the CGO to enhance her research and writing skills while exploring diverse global topics. Currently, she is researching the government’s expenditure on broadband.

If Kylie could share one significant fact, it would be that deforestation contributes approximately 10% of global greenhouse gas emissions. This awareness helps people make informed decisions about consumption, support conservation efforts, and advocate for policies that protect forests and combat climate change.

After graduation, Kylie plans to work for Zions Bank Corporation in Salt Lake City, Utah.

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.
