This Foundation was created in 1961 under the will of the late Earle W. Fellows-Williamson, widow of the beloved Pensacola physician, Dr. J. Hugh Fellows, as a means of assisting deserving and qualified men and women in pursuit of an education in medicine, nursing, medical technology or ministry.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide educational loans to students in Northwest Florida who are seeking degrees in the areas of medicine, nursing, medical technology or ministry.

Letter from the Chairman

To: Students Residing in Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton Counties:

Through the foresight and generosity of Dr. and Mrs. J. Hugh Fellows, the Fellows Foundation has provided low interest educational loans to deserving students from the four Northwest Florida counties for almost fifty years. Many of the medical doctors, physician assistants, nurses, medical technologists, and church ministers with whom you may have had personal contact have received their professional education with the help of Fellows Fund loans.

On behalf of the Fellows Foundation Trustees, I invite you to inquire about our loan program. If you intend to pursue a career in medicine, nursing, medical technology, or the ministry, you will probably find our Fellows Fund loans to be your best financial alternative. If so, please submit an application.
