Accepting Your Award
We do not require that you officially accept your offer of assistance. We will assume that you accept the entire aid package unless you specifically notify us in writing that you wish to decline all or part of the award.
Declining Your Award
Should you decide to decline any part of your award, we ask you indicate in writing which type(s) of assistance you are reducing or declining. Please sign, date, and return the letter to our office; you may wish to make a copy of it for your files. Please send written notification to firstname.lastname@example.org. Award components can be declined at any time.
