Grant recipients must complete the supplier information form and submit it to the Political Science Department Office. Recipients will receive a single check that will be mailed to the address provided on the form.
We expect the IRS to treat the award amount as taxable, and CWRU will provide a Form 1099 for the amount of the award. Students can use the award either for expenses necessitated by the internship, such as travel to and accommodations in the location of the internship, or for income. How they report the grants and in what ways they may try to deduct expenses is a matter for the students, their parents or guardians, and any financial advisers. We urge that they be careful to comply with the law, and neither the department nor the university will presume to give advice about any individual situation.
