Indigenous Bursary

The Meriden Indigenous Bursary was established in 2008 to facilitate a Meriden education for Indigenous girls from the remote community of Ti Tree (200km north of Alice Springs).

In 2015, Meriden celebrated a milestone in Indigenous education. Anthea Joe, a student from the Ti Tree community who commenced at Meriden in Year 7, completed Year 12.  Anthea graduated as only the second person, and first female, in the Tanami Desert region to acquire a high school credential, in this case the HSC. Since then, Meriden has had several more Indigenous students graduate Year 12.
