ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina State University is receiving almost $900,000 from the federal government to upgrade laboratory space at the Orangeburg school.

The grant is part of about $19 million the U.S. Department of Agriculture is awarding to improve food science labs at historically black land-grant colleges and universities.

The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg reports (https://bit.ly/2bENNiQ ) that the university sought the grant to ensure its labs are safe, clean and properly equipped.
