SWOSU Launches COVID $$$ Incentives for Students & Employees
Southwestern Oklahoma State University is encouraging students, staff and faculty at all locations to get fully COVID-19 vaccinated. Not only will you be keeping yourself and those around you healthy, you will receive an award and be entered in a drawing to win $5,000 grand prizes.
Vaccines are available for free at several vaccination clinics on the SWOSU campus, including one in the Pioneer Cellular Event Center on August 20. Here are other options: https://share.swosu.edu/VaccinationsInWArea
Currently enrolled students at SWOSU who provide proof of vaccination by October 8 will each receive a $100 award and be entered to win one of four $5,000 grand prizes. Additionally, employees who provide proof of vaccination by October 8 will each receive a $125 award and employees will be entered to win one of two $5,000 grand prizes.
To be eligible, you must be fully vaccinated. To meet the October 8 deadline means starting the vaccination process at the latest by September 10 for Moderna and September 17 for Pfizer, which require a four-week and three-week waiting period between doses, respectively.
The student incentive applies to all students currently enrolled. Look for your Canvas course named: Vaccination $$$ Incentives—Students. Student $100 awards will be processed weekly.
For employees, look for your Canvas course named: Vaccination $$$ Incentives—Employees. Employee $125 awards will be processed monthly.
Incentives are being funded by the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF).
Note: Both students and employees can start uploading their vaccination cards on Wednesday, August 18. #SWOSUVaccinate
