Do you teach students who have great potential but won't be able to begin their post-secondary education next fall without financial assistance? The TCTA Scholarship Program is accepting applications through May 1, 2013. Thanks to the generosity of the late Charles and Phyllis Gottlieb, the TCTA Scholarship Program has awarded more than $200,000 since 2010, and more than $128,000 is expected to be awarded in fall 2013.

AUSTIN—In fall 2012, the Texas Classroom Teachers Association awarded $108,000 in scholarships to 42 students pursuing higher education or vocational training. The TCTA Scholarship Program, now in its third year, is funded by the estate of the late philanthropists Charles and Phyllis Gottlieb, and it is unlike most other scholarship programs.
