Southwest Airlines and HACU Open Travel Program for College Students

Southwest Airlines in conjunction with the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) announced the opening of “Dándole Alas a Tu Éxito/Giving Flight to Your Success,” its annual education travel award program. Online applications will be accepted through April 30, 2010, at http://www.hacu.net/hacu/Lanzate_EN.asp?SnID=1656070288

Through this national education initiative, Southwest Airlines will award roundtrip airline tickets to undergraduate and graduate students across the country who travel away from home to pursue a higher education and meet their eligibility criteria.

A selection committee consisting of national education advocates and community leaders will select the award recipients. Recipients may be awarded 1-4 roundtrip tickets for the student and/or parent to use when traveling to/from the college/university. The complimentary airline ticket(s) can be used for travel to any of the 68 Southwest Airlines destinations.
