Many students worry about whether they can get into a good university and whether they will be ready for college. For the second year, the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University is offering a free "bridge program" to help Arizona students with the transition from high school to university business school. The Fleischer Business Scholars Program is open to select minority and economically disadvantaged students and will take place this June at ASU.

The Fleischer Business Scholars Program is available only to students in the summer between their junior and senior years. Local entrepreneur Morton Fleischer and his wife, Arizona State University graduate Donna Fleischer, donated the scholarships for the program, which will run from June 5 to 10 this year. High school counselors and teachers are encouraged to help identify strong candidates interested in business to apply by the April 1 deadline.

About 30 students will be chosen for this year's event. For more information, call (480) 965-5187, e-mail or visit
