Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE: LUV) and The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) have announced applications for the 2019 Lanzate!/Take Off! Travel Program are now open, the companies said.

Each year, this program provides roundtrip air travel to be used by the program recipients for travel home from school. Applicants must write a personal essay addressing questions outlined in the application. In the essay, applicants should demonstrate or discuss socio-economic need such as financial need or cultural considerations. Applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program at least 200 miles from home and meet other qualifications.

This year celebrates the 15th anniversary of the program. Annually, the Lanzate! Travel Award Program provides travel to students and over the years, has helped connect thousands of students who are away from their families during their studies.

The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, founded in 1986, represents more than 500 colleges and universities in the United States, Latin America, Spain and school districts throughout the US.

Dallas-based Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE: LUV) became the nation's largest domestic air carrier in 2003 and maintains that ranking based on the US Department of Transportation's most recent reporting of domestic originating passengers boarded. In peak travel seasons, Southwest operates more than 4,000 weekday departures among a network of 100 destinations in the United States and 10 additional countries.
