Due to the extreme generosity of the late Dr. Earl James Fahringer, the Hemophilia Foundation of Southern California is thrilled to have a scholarship fund known as the Dr. Earl James Fahringer Arts Scholarship, which will be awarded each year to 1-2 students pursuing a major in music, arts, drama, or dance. Dr. Fahringer was a lifelong musician, and music educator in the Pomona School District and served as a violinist, violist, percussionist, Assistant Conductor, Music Director, and Co-Conductor of the Claremont Symphony Orchestra. We hope to provide the means for young musicians and artists to pursue their education through this scholarship.
