In an effort to end the pandemic, Madonna University has joined the White House and the U.S. Department of Education in the COVID-19 College Vaccine Challenge. To that end, Madonna students who are vaccinated for the Coronavirus and enrolled for the Fall 2021 semester are eligible to participate in weekly drawings for a chance to win up to $1,000 in tuition credit. Each student who participates in the drawing ALSO will receive a one-time $10-dollar gift certificate from the Spirit Store. Drawings will occur every week, beginning July 2 and ending September 3.

In most cases, there will be no change in your financial aid package with this award. Students with high merit awards plus additional institutional awards, such as for athletics, leadership, etc. may have their overall package adjusted to avoid over-awarding of Title IV aid according to federal regulations. The overall value of your total aid package, which includes this award, will not be decreased.
No, students are eligible whether they live on or off campus.
Any student who is admitted for Fall 2021 and will be attending classes in the United States may enter. Those receiving tuition waivers, including faculty, staff, and family members are ineligible. You must be enrolled in at least three (3) semester hours and meet other eligibility criteria above to receive your tuition credit.
That’s great, and thank you for doing your part to keep the Madonna University community safe! To be entered into the drawings, simply complete the entry form. You’ll be eligible for all 10 of the drawings, if you enter before June 30, so don’t delay!
The credit will be applied in the third week of Fall Semester 2021 with any other financial aid you receive.
The COVID-19 vaccine is broadly available at doctor's office, clinics and retail pharmacies. Meijer, CVS, Walgreen's, and Rite-Aid pharmacies all provide COVID-19 vaccinations, and many locations are providing the vaccine with no appointment required. We also are planning for one or more vaccination clinic days at the Madonna University Campus Health Center in the coming months.

No. The U.S. government is providing the COVID-19 vaccine free of charge to all people living in the United States, regardless of their immigration or health insurance status. As a vaccine recipient, you cannot be charged for the COVID-19 vaccine. If you do have health insurance, the provider may charge your insurance an administrative fee, but there will be no out-of-pocket cost to you.
No, but it is strongly encouraged, and the University will follow different protocols for those who are vaccinated and those who are not, to help ensure the safety of all members of the University community.
