The Ireland Institute coordinates the American Ireland Fund Rooney  Fellowship. Named in honor of Daniel M. Rooney, co-founder of the Ireland Fund, the fellowship is awarded each year to an outstanding student of Newry & Kilkeel Institute of Further Higher Education, Northern Ireland. The fellowship provides the opportunity for a student to undertake a one-year undergraduate business program at the University of Pittsburgh or Duquesne University and to participate in an internship program with the H.
