Even if you received a scholarship, grant, or bursary that is not reported on a slip (T4A or RL-1), you must report amounts you received on your income tax return. If you received scholarships, fellowships, or bursaries and are not entitled to the education amount in respect of these amounts, then report on your tax return only the part of these amounts that is more than $500.
