Michelle Weinberger, an MSc student in Population and Development in 2009-10, won the top prize for her dissertation on “Making Sense of Tanzania’s Fertility: the role of contraceptive use”.
The Population Investigation Committee also awarded scholarships to three students starting an MSc at LSE in October this year. They are Thomasoo Rosanna (Population and Development), Philipa Davies and Melissa Shannon (both Health Population and Society).
