The Fleischer Scholars Program
The Fleischer Scholars Program within the W. P. Carey School of Business provides a great opportunity for high school juniors, preparing to enter their senior year in fall 2013, to experience a taste of college life, entrepreneurship, and business during a week-long residential program.
The program is tailored for economically disadvantaged Arizona high school students interested in pursuing business as a career. Students selected for the program benefit from a multitude of resources, and they learn necessary skills for success in college and beyond.
Benefits of being a Fleischer Scholar:
In addition to learning about our degree programs and corresponding careers in business, Fleischer scholars will also develop valuable time management and college level study skills, be mentored by current W. P. Carey students, and participate in team projects and on-site company visits. The benefits of the program continue after the end of the summer session, as the students are invited to W. P. Carey events and assisted throughout the college admission and enrollment process.

There will be two residential programs taking place on June 9 – 14, 2013 and June 23 -28, 2013 at the Arizona State University Tempe Campus. When applying, students have the option to choose a specific date or no preference. After choosing your preferred week, the program kicks off with dinner for you and your parents and concludes with an awards ceremony and luncheon.
To apply for the 2013 summer program, please submit the online application by April 15th. The online application can be accessed here. The additional documents required for the application (a letter of recommendation and high school transcripts) should be emailed as attachments to Katherine.Cobos@asu.edu.
The Fleischer Scholars Program is free to economically disadvantaged high school students between their junior and senior year. All costs associated with the program are covered and include residential housing, meals and program events.
