Here’s another vaccine incentive, for those keeping track: Rowan University, in New Jersey, is offering up to $1,000 for many students who get the Covid-19 vaccine.
The incentive is for full-time students who show proof of vaccination by August 7. They’ll get $500 toward course registration, and students who live on campus will get an additional $500 to pay for housing.
It’s an unusually generous incentive, but it’s far from the only one. At the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, students who are vaccinated could enter a lottery for free housing, textbooks, or meal credits. Other campuses, including Siena College, said they would relax certain Covid-related rules once a certain percentage of in-person students got the shot.
