The Federal Tax Reform Act of 1986 significantly changed the tax status of scholarships,
fellowships, and grants you receive from the university. Prior to the Act, scholarships,
fellowships, and grants were generally not subject to income tax. Since then, scholarship,
fellowship, and grant amounts exceeding tuition, fees, and course-related books, supplies,
and equipment have become taxable.
