Claiming your award

Everyone who receives an SSB award must fill out the proper paperwork to get a check.

To facilitate this process, we have created a flow chart that shows the requirements for getting your award monies to you or your institution.

By far the easiest route to getting your money is if we can issue your award to an Academic Institution (no paperwork!). If your institution is not able to receive this award for you, then please follow the instructions on the flow chart.
