Stetson Offers Vaccinated Students Chance to Win Free Tuition

Stetson University, a private institution in Florida, is giving two undergraduate students full tuition for one year as part of a COVID-19 vaccination incentive program.

Undergraduate students who provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 by July 25 will be eligible for a drawing to win one of two one-year, full-tuition awards. Vaccinated undergraduate and graduate students will also be eligible to win a $1,000 award in one of eight weekly drawings Stetson is hosting between June 11 and July 30. To be eligible for the drawings, students must be attending classes in person and be enrolled full-time.

Stetson’s goal is for 70 to 80 percent of its population to be vaccinated against COVID-19. As of Friday, 28 percent of members of the university community had reported to Stetson they were fully vaccinated.

Purdue University and the state of New York are also offering entry into free tuition lottery programs as an incentive to encourage vaccination.
