HACU and Southwest Airlines announce 175 student recipients of ¡Lánzate!/Take Off! Travel Award Program

The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities and Southwest Airlines have announced 175 college students will receive round-trip air travel through Southwest Airlines, as part of the SWA ¡Lánzate!/Take Off! Travel Award Program. The program was designed to help Hispanic college students stay connected with their family during the school year.

The awardees were selected from students across the nation who submitted essays under the theme "Dándole Alas a Tu Exito/Giving Flight to Your Success," that described how the travel award would help them achieve their goal to pursue a higher education.

The ¡Lánzate!/Take Off! Higher Education Travel Program, in its 16th year, awarded nearly 600 tickets among the 2020 recipients. For a complete list of all student recipients and their colleges and universities, click here.
