Taxability of University Housing Scholarship

Saint Louis University may offer university housing scholarships to enrolled or prospective students, depending upon funding and administrative discretion in a given academic year. To that extent, students who receive this scholarship may encounter federal tax liabilities.
Furthermore, while most scholarships are considered tax-free, a scholarship or fellowship grant, by definition of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), is considered tax-free only to the extent that:

  • It does not exceed your qualified educational expenses; and
  • It is not designated or earmarked for other purposes (such as room and board); and
  • It does not require (by its terms) that it cannot be used for qualified educational expenses.

U.S. Department of Treasury. Internal Revenue Service. Publication 970: Tax Benefits for Education. Washington, DC. Government Printing Office. 2015. (Cat. No. 25221V).

Because Saint Louis University housing scholarships are designated for room and board, they are considered taxable. Please note that as financial aid administrators we are not tax advisers. We encourage students and their families to seek tax advice from a trained tax professional regarding the treatment of this type of scholarship.
