Though the Orangeburg County circuit dismissed the State of South Carolina from the SAFE Grant lawsuit case, the judge has not issued a ruling on the rest of the lawsuit yet. Nevertheless, the lawsuit is not halting the Application Process for SAFE grants. A total of 2,500 grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis, then distributed through a lottery after that to allocate the balance of available grant funds, as needed. If you are a parent who wants a Catholic school education for your child(ren), and would be interested in applying for SAFE Grants (up to $6,500 per student for use toward tuition).
