This grant opportunity is administered by the Leslie Harris Centre of Regional Policy and Development.

The Cabot Martin Award for Research in Regional Policy and Development was established in memory of Cabot James Martin (1944-2022), considered by many to be one of the driving forces behind the Atlantic Accord. Passionate about Newfoundland and Labrador and public policy, Cabot Martin left a legacy of visionary approaches to fisheries, aquaculture, offshore oil and gas policy and was a vocal proponent of local approaches to economic development and strong democratic processes and institutions.

Directed toward the governance and policy issues which were so central to Mr. Martin’s writings and public commentary, the $18,000 award will be given annually to a student, faculty or staff member of Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador for a research project directed toward governance and public policy issues. In addition, the Cabot Martin Award Lecture in Regional Policy and Development in Newfoundland and Labrador will see the research fund recipient deliver a public lecture to share the results of their work and spark further discussion on topics of importance to the province.
