New York’s pitch to parents of young children eager to get the COVID-19 vaccine now includes the possibility of a full-ride scholarship to any SUNY or CUNY school.
Parents or legal guardians of any New Yorker who is 5 to 11 years of age and who has received at least their first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, may enter their child for a chance to win one of 50, four-year, full-ride scholarships (including tuition, fees, room-and-board, and expenses) to any two-year or four-year New York State public college or university.
It’s part of the ‘Vaccinate, Educate, Graduate’ incentive scholarship program. The program runs for five weeks, and is part of the public outreach campaign geared toward getting more New Yorkers vaccinated.
Drawings will take place on November 22 and 29, as well as December 6, 13, and 20.
Starting today, 5-11 year olds who get vaccinated can enter to win a full-ride scholarship to any New York public university or college!
