The recent conference of the British Society of Population Studies in York was very fruitful for LSE students. 

LSE PhD student, Emily Freeman won the prize for best poster on “Sex that gives and takes. Sexuality in older age in rural Malawi“. (View the BSPS award-winning poster)

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).

The British Society of Population Studies was founded in 1973 and is based at LSE.
