Noah Jensen

Undergraduate Research Fellow


Noah is an undergraduate student doing a dual degree in Economics and Political Science, set to graduate in Spring 2024.

He joined the CGO in Fall 2021 to engage in meaningful research, primarily focusing on immigration. Noah is currently studying important aspects like border security and immigration reform. He co-wrote a key article called “Immigrants are huge economic contributors.”

If Noah could share one key fact, it would be about the significant financial contribution made by immigrants, who pay more in taxes than they receive in benefits. This shows that immigrants benefit their host countries greatly. It’s important to dispel misconceptions and realize that integrating immigrants isn’t costly or difficult.

Looking to the future, Noah is interested in a career in the government sector. He’s keen on working for the State Department after finishing his undergrad studies.

About Student Research Fellows

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.
