IUSSP Laureate Award

In 2018 the IUSSP awarded its 28th Laureate Award to Bob McCaa.


Each year the IUSSP honours one of its members by bestowing its Laureate Award. The IUSSP Laureate Award was established in 1991 to recognize the life-time achievements of outstanding IUSSP members. Contributions to the advancement of population sciences and distinguished service rendered to the IUSSP are considered in making the award. The IUSSP membership nominates candidates for this award and members of the IUSSP Council select the successful candidate by secret ballot after careful review of each candidate’s dossier and testimonials.


To be eligible for consideration, an individual must have been a member of the IUSSP for at least 20 years and be nominated by five or more IUSSP members from different countries. Members of the Council and Honorary Presidents may not be nominated for the award. The nomination letter (s) should include a supporting statement and be duly signed by at least five current IUSSP members from different countries. Self-nominations will not be considered.  Nominated candidates remain eligible for the award for a period of two years.
