Funded by the estate of the late philanthropists Charles and Phyllis Gottlieb, the TCTA Scholarship Program was established in 2010 by the Texas Classroom Teachers Association.

The scholarship program is designed for students who face hardships or challenges that may make higher education or career/vocational training difficult or even impossible to attain without assistance.

Rather than focusing on academic records, TCTA members – educators who teach in Texas public school classrooms – select award recipients who may not be at the top of their class and do not have other scholarship opportunities, but who have qualities that make them likely to succeed if given the chance.

Due to a change in the estate's management, only renewal applications will be accepted in 2019.
