The award is presently $3,000, consisting of $100 cash and $2900 to be awarded at a future date (either sufficient funds on hand to cover operating expenses and awards as determined by the board of directors OR upon claiming the $150,000 EFF award for the first discovery of a 100 million digit prime number). GIMPS may, at its sole discretion and without notice, change the award amount or retroactively increase certain previously-awarded Research Discovery Awards up to the a maximum amount of $5000.
So, if you are a participant that generally means that you use Prime95 or get assignments from PrimeNet. Either one binds you to the rules and opens you up for the reward.
