The Oregonian Club will award $9,000 in scholarships and $6,000 in project money to area schools. The funds were raised from the 24th annual Bird Cage Ball held earlier this year, according to a club spokesperson.
Scholarship recipients are chosen from criteria that includes academic achievement, participation or leadership in school activities and involvement in community service. Winners will be announced later this year.
Since 1986, the Oregonian Club has awarded $220,000 to 248 area students.
