70 for 70

Help your UW campus hit 70% vaccination rate and win one of 70 scholarships

Deadline Extended to October 31



As we welcome students back to campus this fall, we want their experience to be as normal and safe as we can make it. That means students should get vaccinated, and we will incentivize it knowing that high vaccination rates are critical to our success. The 70 for 70 campaign is key to helping our universities achieve higher vaccination rates, especially in the face of the looming threat the Delta variant poses.

UW System President Tommy Thompson

Scholarships for Vaccinated Students

UW System students enrolled for Fall 2021 who are vaccinated and inform their UW campus will be eligible to receive a $7,000 scholarship when their campus reaches a 70% vaccination rate. UW-Madison is not participating in this incentive campaign and fully online students are ineligible.

Win a Scholarship

To be eligible for the drawing to win one of 70 scholarships, students must receive their full vaccination series by October 31 and notify their UW System campus. Winners will be selected after October 31 and informed by their UW System campus if they have won.

Odds of winning depend on the number of UW System campuses participating and the number of UW System campuses reaching the 70% goal. All UW System students (excluding UW-Madison or fully online) are eligible to report their vaccinations and enter this drawing. Approximately 85,000 individuals are eligible to participate.

Students may have at least a 1 in 1,200 chance of receiving a scholarship.  Students graduating in Fall 2021 can discuss disbursement of award with their individual campus upon notification. No purchase or payment is necessary to be eligible to enter the drawing.  Scholarships will be evaluated pursuant to the laws of the State of Wisconsin.  Void where prohibited.

Student Government Incentive

To promote peer-to-peer engagement throughout the campaign, the UW System is also offering $5,000 to student governments who assist in getting their student body to a 70 percent vaccination rate.

“The 70 for 70 campaign is a great opportunity for students to be rewarded for doing their part to keep their campus healthy and safe,” said UW-Stout Student Government President Devin Dumke, “As students we should make the responsible decision to get vaccinated and smash COVID!”
