KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) — A couple jabs in the arm could make college less expensive at two Michigan schools.

Western Michigan University says it will hold a series of drawings to give away more than $100,000 to students who have been vaccinated against COVID-19.

There will be 60 winners.

The biggest prizes are five worth $10,000 each.

The money can be used for tuition, fees, campus housing, and campus dining.

Meanwhile, Albion College is giving a year of free tuition to a lucky immunized student.
