​About the Art Rooney Scholarship Fund

The Art Rooney Scholarship Fund was established in memory of the late founder of the Steelers, who died in August of 1988 after living most of his life on the North Side. The scholarship annually provides a grant to a Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic student and funds the Pittsburgh Promise scholarships for two Perry High School students. Since its beginning, the scholarship has awarded grants to more than 80 local students.
