Students at a New York City school have been awarded $1 million for the purchase of wine and beer to fund their studies abroad.

The students at the City College of New York, whose first semester began in January, earned the money by purchasing and consuming about 300 bottles of red and white wines and 750 bottles of beers during their freshman year.

Students at City College earned more than $100,000 from the winery sales in the first year of their studies.

The money was split among the students as a means to pay for the tuition, books, and other expenses of their first year.

The wine and alcohol program, called The Wine & Ale Exchange, was launched in 2016, and its goal is to help students earn their first degree abroad.
