TEMECULA, Calif. — Nufactor®, a specialty infusion company and subsidiary of FFF Enterprises Inc., is now accepting applications for its 28th annual Eric Dostie Memorial College Scholarship. Ten awards of $1,000 each will be granted to qualifying students who can best demonstrate scholastic achievement, community service and financial need.
The scholarship was created to honor the memory of Eric Dostie, a 5-year-old boy with hemophilia who was tragically murdered on August 27, 1994, due to the high cost of his healthcare. Awards will provide financial assistance to students who either have hemophilia or von Willebrand disease, or who have a family member with hemophilia or von Willebrand disease. Applicants must be United States citizens, live in the United States, and be enrolled full-time in an accredited two- or four-year college program in the United States.

Schmidt, chief executive officer at FFF Enterprises Inc. "At FFF, we understand the financial impact a bleeding disorder can have on individuals and their families. This scholarship is about ensuring a quality higher education remains within financial reach for these bright, talented young people."
