Ohio Vax-2-School deadlines just around the corner for chance at $2 million in scholarships


CLEVELAND (WJW) — Deadlines are swiftly approaching for those looking to sign up for Ohio’s Vax-2-School scholarship program.

Ohioans ages 5-25 who have received at least their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine are now eligible to win up to $100,000 in scholarships.

Unlike Ohio’s previous Vax-a-Million program, Vax-2-School is offering a bevy of payouts rather than just five $1 million prizes and five full-ride scholarship prizes. With this, the state is offering 150 $10,000 scholarships and five $100,000 grand prize scholarships, for a total of $2 million in scholarships statewide.

Here are the deadlines to remember, with all deadlines hitting at 11:59 on that day:

  • Nov. 21 – means you’re eligible for all drawings
  • Nov. 28 – means your name is thrown into the second drawing (75 $10,000 winners) and the grand prize drawings
  • Dec. 1 – means you’ll only be a part of the grand prize drawing.

The scholarship money can be used at any Ohio university or trade school or program of the recipient’s choice.

Winners are set to be revealed every day from Nov. 28-Dec. 3, with the big prizes being revealed on Dec. 2 with a live lottery broadcast (which FOX 8 will stream live).
