Vaccine Scholarship Incentive

The New York State Health Department has announced a "Get a Shot to Make Your Future" incentive for New Yorkers age 12-17 to get a COVID-19 vaccine.


Parents or legal guardians of any New Yorker ages 12 to 17 can enter their child who has received at least their first COVID-19 vaccine dose, for a chance to win one of 50 four-year, full-ride scholarships (including tuition, fees, room-and-board, and expenses) to any New York State public college or university.


Drawings will be conducted weekly, for five weeks. Ten weekly winners (for a total of 50 winners) will be announced each Wednesday. Additional information is available at:
