May 28, 2021

Purdue University said Thursday that students vaccinated against COVID-19 will be eligible to win a year’s worth of in-state undergraduate tuition.

Students must submit proof of vaccination to the university by July 15, and the winners will be announced July 29.

Earlier this week, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York similarly announced that New Yorkers age 12 to 17 who get at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine are eligible for a chance to win one of 50 four-year, full scholarships to any New York State public college or university.
