A ring R is called left QF-3 if it has a minimal faithful left R-module. The endomorphism ring of such a module has been recently studied in , where conditions are given for it to be a left PF ring or a QF ring. The object of the present paper is to study, more generally, when the endomorphism ring of a Σ-quasi-projective module over any ring R is left QF-3. Necessary and sufficient conditions for this to happen are given in Theorem 2. An useful concept in this investigation is that of a QF-3 module which has been introduced in . If M is a finitely generated quasi-projective module and σ[M] denotes the category of all modules isomorphic to submodules of modules generated by M, then we show that End(RM) is a left QF-3 ring if and only if the quotient module of M modulo its torsion submodule (in the torsion theory of σ[M] canonically defined by M) is a QF-3 module (Corollary 4). Finally, we apply these results to the study of the endomorphism ring of a minimal faithful R-module over a left QF-3 ring, extending some of the results of .
