As far as I know, scholarships become reportable income with a 1099 when they cover more than the cost of education.

I second what rad said. I just finsihed my son's taxes and since his Scholarships/grants were less that tuition, he had no reportable income for taxes (he was awarded work-study, but using it is an entirely different matter). His only income was a little interest, so no filing necessary for him this year. Also made his FAFSA really easy to do.
