Will My Scholarship be Taxed?

If you are a U.S. citizen or a resident alien, Harvard will not withhold taxes on your scholarship or monthly graduate stipend. Part of your scholarship may be considered taxable income, however (please see below). Permanent residents are treated like U.S. citizens for tax purposes.

If you meet the tests for residency (see Internal Revenue Service Publication 519), please notify the Student Accounts Office of your status change.
