Exceptional SC Spring Awards Update

Exceptional SC

Dear Parents,

We would like to provide you with program updates for the upcoming semester.

Applications for spring awards will close December 31, 2017. Please make sure your application is submitted and your paperwork is uploaded before midnight. If you submitted an application for the fall, then no action is required.

We will begin verifying applications with schools during the second week of January. Spring award notifications will be sent out after school verification. We expect most awards to match fall amounts. Awards will be sent to schools once this process is complete.

Please Note: We will not begin processing new applicants until we've finished spring awards for students currently in our program. Since our funding is limited to $11 million, we do not know at this point how much funding, if any, new applicants can expect.

Keep in Touch: Stay informed throughout this process by liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter. Help our efforts to raise awareness and encourage the legislature to raise our funding cap by liking and sharing our content on social media.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at


The Exceptional SC Board of Directors
