David Hartley Fund

The David Hartley Fund provides financial support to students of the Eveleth-Gilbert area who plan a career in engineering, a mining-related field or in conservation or environmental sciences. Applicants must be high school seniors who reside or attend school within the boundaries of the Eveleth-Gilbert School District and who plan to pursue a two- or four-year degree leading to a career in the desired fields. David Hartley grew up in Duluth and moved to the Eveleth area to pursue a career in mining after his World War II service. He was devoted to the Eveleth area, a strong believer in education and committed to giving back to the community.
