I am a graduate student. I am trying to fill out my taxes. My fellowship covers both my tuition and provides me with a monthly stipend. On my 1098-T (document that says how much I paid for schooling) it says how much tuition my fellowship covered. On my tax forms (1040) how do I put in my monthly stipend I get from my fellowship?


You start with reading the IRS Publication 970. Specifically for your question - the chapter that discusses taxable and non-taxable fellowships.

Once you figure out the taxable portion of your fellowship (basically everything not applied to the tuition), follow the instructions in this chapter of the same publication as to how to report. For 1040 filers such as yourself, you would put the amount on line 7 (whether you got a a W2 or not).
