If you are studying full-time, your scholarship money will usually not be treated as taxable income.
Exceptions may apply if:
- Your study load is less than 75 credits (part-time).
- It is a condition of your scholarship that you undertake activities that are of use, help or benefit to the scholarship provider (i.e you are rendering a service by agreeing to undertake the activities).
- Upon completion of your degree you are required to become, or shall continue to be, an employee of the scholarship provider.
- Your scholarship is not provided principally for educational purposes.
If a letter regarding your scholarship is required for taxation purposes, contact the Scholarships Office.
