First Two $50,000 VaxU Scholarship Lottery Winners Are From MoCo
The first two students to receive a $50,000 scholarship from the VaxU program are from Potomac and Silver Spring.
The VaxU Scholarship program is an incentive program to encourage 12- to 17-year-olds to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
“Winners will receive a $50,000 scholarship, which covers the equivalent of full tuition and fees at a public, in-state institution of higher education. The Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) and the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) will jointly administer this initiative, which will select 20 winners through random drawings between now and Labor Day.”
