NEW YORK — Ten lucky students in New York received full college scholarships on Wednesday, simply for getting vaccinated against COVID-19.
Parents or legal guardians of any New Yorker between 12 and 17 years old who receives at least their first dose of a COVID vaccine can enter their child into a prize drawing with the chance to receive a four-year scholarship to a CUNY or SUNY college, including tuition, fees, room-and-board, and other expenses.
A total of 50 scholarships were put up for grabs. Ten new winners will be announced each week.
