Grant Fergusson


Grant Fergusson was raised in the suburbs of the American South, but joins his cohort after fifteen months working as a paralegal in New York City, where he spent his time on a variety of legal matters including government compliance, high-stakes tax controversies, and white collar criminal investigations. Prior to his time in New York, Grant earned his Bachelor's Degree from Yale University, where he studied human behavior in political and legal settings. His senior thesis research, which analyzed political group membership and social threats during the 2016 American Presidential election, was recently published in the psychology journal, Self & Identity. His academic interests include the interface of technology and policy-making, criminal justice reform, and voting behavior. His non-academic interests include singing, diving, and writing; in fact, Grant took a year off from his undergraduate studies to sing and travel the world with his a cappella group, the Yale Whiffenpoofs.
