Vaccine Incentive Program


Full vaccination against the COVID-19 virus is the best way for students, faculty and staff to stay healthy and avoid missing class, work, athletic events and on-campus social activities this Fall. And now it can help you earn cash.

FGCU has launched a vaccine incentive program, where all currently enrolled students and active employees who voluntarily show proof of vaccination are eligible for $100. Students can also win additional cash prizes through 10 weekly random drawings.

The prize amounts and number of winners will be different every week, so we will email a preview of the coming week’s prizes to students every Monday. 


Tenth student drawing details:

To be eligible to win, your information must show in the Student Health Services Portal by Saturday, Oct. 23. Winners will be notified by email on Tuesday, Oct. 26.

The incentive program runs through Oct. 23. See our FAQs for more information.

Week 10 prizes are:

  • 1 student will win a $1,000 check
  • 1 student will win a $500 check
  • 1 student will win a $250 check
