No, generally scholarships are always tax free if they are used for qualified education expenses, but again they become taxable if used for other purposes. It is always important to keep records of how the scholarship funds are used and consult IRS guidelines or a tax professional for specific advice tailored to your situation.

Only the portion of the scholarship that exceeds tuition is considered taxable.

They have always been subject to taxation. You need to demonstrate sufficient deductible expenses to balance out the income received from your scholarships.

No, scholarships and fellowship grants are often tax-free

It is not taxable only if you use it for qualified educational expenses
