Can i deduct the tuition payments made for my grandchild?

No, you cannot unless unless your grandchild is also your dependent on your own tax return.  Otherwise, the tuition you generously paid is a gift you gave your grandchild, and gifts are not deductible.  Nor are gifts taxable to the person who received them.
