It’s Worth a Shot!
Students who are fully vaccinated and upload the proof are automatically entered for a chance to win a $500 scholarship through UWM! (And by sharing proof of your vaccination, you won’t be required to test weekly.)
So far, UWM has awarded four $500 scholarships — two for reaching student vaccination rates of 85% and 90%, and two more when the faculty/staff vaccination rate hit 80%.
Students can release the last $500 scholarship if the vaccination rate reaches 95%!
Check out the current vaccination rates on the COVID-19 dashboard, which is updated each Wednesday afternoon. Scholarship winners are randomly drawn on Thursdays. And if you haven’t yet, upload your proof of full vaccination!
