A GREENBANK high school graduate who is enrolled to study law and criminology will have some of her university costs covered by Logan City Council and businesses.
Molly Meredith was one of 17 students to receive a $3000 tertiary educational bursary late last month.
Each bursary is split and delivered across separate payments, dependent on successful course completion.

Ms Meredith said she was delighted to have received the bursary.
The money would be used to pay for transport to and from Griffith University, IT equipment and textbooks, she said.
“I was kind of shocked as only 17 got picked,” she said.
Logan City acting mayor Cherie Dalley said the bursaries, funded by 12 businesses and council, were awarded to outstanding students.
“Not only have the recipients exceeded academically, many have also demonstrated outstanding cultural and community achievements,” she said.
“It’s evident that the future of Logan is in safe hands when you meet outstanding young citizens like these bursary recipients.”
