Jacob Broussard receives Wilma Mankiller Fellowship for Tribal Policy and Governance

Jacob Broussard (’18), a recent graduate of the USC Thornton Choral Music program, has received the Wilma Mankiller Fellowship for Tribal Policy and Governance, administered by the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI). Broussard, who previously received the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship to undertake ethnomusicological research, will be working in Washington D.C. at the Embassy of Tribal Nations, where he will assist national leaders on aspects of tribal policy for one year.

Broussard has been accepted to a PhD program in Ethnomusicology at the University of Washington, which he plans to defer to undertake the NCAI fellowship.
