Madison Wright was one of the many students that won a $500 scholarship this semester after joining the university's vaccination incentive program.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – More students were announced as winners in this week’s incentive drawing for being vaccinated against COVID-19. In total, 330 students have earned rewards this semester as part of the vaccine incentive program and there’s still time to sign up for the remaining drawings.

Any student is eligible to win just by getting a COVID-19 vaccination and can sign up entering to win if they haven’t already.

Weekly drawings are held every Wednesday. The next drawing is scheduled for Dec. 8.

Additional weekly drawings will be held throughout the semester for COVID-19 vaccination incentives. All vaccinated U of A students who enter are eligible. Currently unvaccinated students can become eligible at any point in the semester as soon as they are vaccinated and have entered to win. Students only need to enter once to be eligible for all of the weekly drawings.

Each week, at least 15 prizes, including three $500 scholarships, will be awarded to vaccinated students who have entered to win. New winning names will be drawn randomly each week. So, the sooner students get vaccinated (and entered), the sooner they become eligible for the weekly drawings.
