Towsley Fund Loans

What Is the Towsley Fund?

The purpose of the Towsley Fund is to help people who are training to become health care professionals.

It was established through a bequest of the late W.D. Towsley, M.D., a Midland family physician.

Dr. Towsley believed very strongly in providing educational opportunities for qualified people pursuing careers in health care. Many area practitioners have benefitted from the program.

Who Is Eligible?

Individuals from the community who have been accepted into an accredited health career program. Those in preliminary or preparatory programs do not qualify.

How Does the Towsley Fund Work?

W.D. Towsley loans are interest free if paid back within a year after graduation. One year after graduation, the loans begin to accrue interested at a specified rate. All loans must be repaid in full within five years so that other students can be helped.
