The Facebook page says they only give them to high level scholarship recipients and those students will be contacted individually
I think it is high level scholarship recipients that are out of state, so slightly more selective with it =\
If you live in El Paso (like me), you're pretty much screwed. You're practically in New Mexico, and it's almost 200 dollars just to get to Austin (driving is nine hours through a miserable stretch of I-10, and the flights are usually at least 100 per trip, unless you can get a 80 dollar deal per SW, 160 roundtrip).
Yeah I drove all the way from the Panhandle to Austin two years ago for ASW (18 hours round trip of torturous driver boredom with nothing to look at but dead grass)...no travel subsidy.
I'm out of country right now so I can't go to ASW, but I would go again if I could. Met really cool people, the tours and information were helpful and it's always nice to visit Austin. Hope y'all have fun this year.
