Award for International Understanding

The Award for International Understanding was designed to recognise those students in an international school who are actively involved in promoting international understanding. ECIS member schools can request a certificate for their nominated student to be handed out at an Awards ceremony or event.

There are no limitations in respect of age, nationality, class, or level of academic performance of the recipient but schools are limited to one award annually.

The following citation, which includes certain qualities it is felt should characterise the student recognised by this honour, is read publicly at the time of the presentation:

"Awarded to a student who is a good representative of their own country, with a positive attitude toward the life and culture of others, able to converse in at least two languages, a contributing force in the life of the school, with the ability to bring differing people together into a sense of community, thus furthering the cause of international understanding".
