James and Muriel Martin Award in Music
The James and Muriel Martin Award was established through a generous gift to the School of Music by Mrs. Helen MacLeod, on behalf of her parents. James and Muriel Martin, lifelong residents of St. John’s, Newfoundland, were enthusiastic participants in the local music scene in the early half of the twentieth century. The award, valued at a portion of the income on the investment, will be given annually to a full-time graduate student (MA or PhD) enrolled in the ethnomusicology program, with preference to a student whose focus is on the research, collection or preservation of music in Newfoundland and Labrador. It will be granted by the Dean, School of Graduate Studies on the recommendation of the Director, School of Music.
