The Martin Lubin Undergraduate Award in the Social Sciences was created in honor of the late Martin Lubin, Professor at SUNY Plattsburgh, who passed away in September 2011. Originally from Montreal, he had played a key role in the Canadian Studies program at SUNY Plattsburgh for many years. His main research focus was on Quebec politics and society.
In 1999, he was awarded the Prix du Quebec from the Government of Quebec in recognition of his "outstanding contributions to Quebec Studies in the United States."
Letters of nomination for this award should be forwarded electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than September 1, 2023.
Due to complications caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Martin Lubin Undergraduate Award in the Social Sciences was not given.
The first recipient was Nicholas Van Tulder, University of Washington, for his research paper "Le Quebec Total: Creating a Unifying Vision for Northern Development (Un Plan Pour Tous)".
