The Fellows Foundation was established in 1961 by Mrs. Earle W. Fellows to honor her late husband, Dr. J. Hugh Fellows, a Pensacola physician for over 45 years. Initially, the Fellows Foundations offered loans to students enrolled in health care fields and the ministry but recently converted to scholarships.
Since its establishment, the Fellows Foundation has provided loans to nearly 500 physicians, other health care employees and clergy members.
