A fellow in the broadest sense is someone who is an equal or a comrade. The term fellow is also used to describe a person, particularly by those in the upper social classes. It is most often used in an academic context: a fellow is often part of an elite group of learned people who are awarded fellowship to work together as peers in the pursuit of knowledge or practice. The fellows may include visiting professors, postdoctoral researchers and doctoral researchers.

Famous quotes containing the word fellow:

    Love is sinister,
    is mean to us in separation;
    makes our thin bodies thinner.
    This fellow Death
    lacks mercy
    and is good at counting our days.
    And Master,
    you, too, are subject
    to the plague of jealousy
    so think:
    how could womenfolk,
    soft as sprouts,
    live like this?
    Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)

    “When was I ever anything but kind to him?
    But I’ll not have the fellow back,” he said.
    “I told him so last haying, didn’t I?
    ‘If he left then,’ I said, ‘that ended it.’
    What good is he? Who else will harbor him
    At his age for the little he can do?
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Jealousy is the theory that some other fellow has just as little taste.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
