Temecula, Calif.: Nufactor, the specialty pharmacy of FFF Enterprises, Inc. is welcoming applications for the 2019 Annual Eric Dostie Memorial College Scholarship. The scholarship was created 25 years ago in remembrance of Eric Dostie, a boy with hemophilia who tragically passed on August 27, 1994, at the young age of 5. Eric's family members find joy in memories of Eric sharing his aspirations of becoming a scientist and inventing a cure for hemophilia in the form of a "chocolate pill." He has inspired many lives through his uplifting positivity, humor and unending love.

"It's an honor to reach the scholarship's 25th year. We look forward to extending this opportunity to another 10 students in helping them reach their goals and at the same time, carry on Eric's memory and aspirations of helping others," says Patrick M. Schmidt, chief executive officer of FFF Enterprises.

This scholarship is open to students who either have hemophilia or a similar bleeding disorder, or have a family member with a bleeding disorder. Each year, 10 students are selected to each receive a $1,000 scholarship. Applicants must be U.S. citizens and enrolled full-time in an accredited two- or four-year college program. Submission requirements include an essay describing how his or her education will impact humanity, encourage self-improvement and enrichment. The recipients are selected based on scholastic achievement, community service and financial need. Last year's scholarship recipients included Angela Kessler, BriAnna Sperry, Cullen Embry, Emily Sampson, Jack Brogan, Justin Najimian, Kaitlin Musick, Kaylee Karcher, Malia Jackson, Nicholas Hebert and Ryan Balog.

Application deadline is March 1, 2019. Visit the Nufactor Eric Dostie Memorial College Scholarship website to learn more about the program and to request an application, or call (800) 323-6832 for additional questions.
