(or download Word Version)

Robert Sills was an exemplary educator, leader, and inspiring individual, who served as Treasurer and President of the Mediterranean Association of International Schools (MAIS). In his memory and through the generosity of TieCare International, MAIS has established the annual Robert Sills Student Award to be granted to those exemplary sixth through eighth grade students enrolled in MAIS member schools. A total of five awards of $500.00 each will be granted in the 2016-2017 Academic Year. Full Member Directors are sent the Nomination Application and Guidelines at the beginning of each school year.

The award is not meant to recognize a specific academic, athletic, or artistic talent or achievement, although nominees may well excel in one or more of these areas. It is intended to recognize those young people who model the character traits that we value most in our students: persistence, a willingness to take risks, acceptance of other cultures and points of view, and a genuine interest in a sustained commitment to the welfare of others.
