Scholarship Program

Wintergreen Northern Wear loves our community, and the youth within it. That's why we created our Scholarship program.

100% of proceeds from our Wintergreen-Worn program go toward our scholarship program for local Ely and Iron Range high school students.

By purchasing a garment from our Wintergreen-Worn program, you're helping a local graduating senior pursue a degree in Art and Design, Apparel Design and Manufacturing, Marketing, Engineering, or Business.

Below you'll find recipients of our Scholarship, along with Requirements and application instructions.
