Vax to the Max campaign awards scholarships

Ensuring the CCU campus community is safeguarded against COVID-19 remains a high priority during the 2021-22 academic year. CCU is in the midst of its Vax to the Max vaccination incentives campaign, which is aimed at getting members of the campus community vaccinated against COVID-19. The University and its partners continue to hold vaccination clinics on campus.

Fully vaccinated students are eligible to win $2,500 scholarships (40 awarded each semester, with two lucky winners receiving full tuition, room, and board for a semester). Fully vaccinated faculty and staff were eligible to win various prizes during a drawing on Oct. 15.

CCU does not mandate COVID-19 vaccinations for its students, faculty, and staff. The incentives programs are being supported by the University’s allotted CARES Act funds. In all, the University plans to award up to $300,000 in student scholarships.
