Fellowship income

I am trying to add fellowship income to my tax form but can't find where to do it. Last year, TurboTax had a prompt about if you were awarded a scholarship etc. and then listed how much was for tuition/books and how much was for room/board/etc. - this year I did not get this prompt and cannot find the correct section. (I did not receive a 1098 either because it is not required for this)

 

Via the IRS website (and previous 1040 from other years) I need to add this to line 8 of the 1040. Does anyone know where/how to do this? 

Any suggestions I have found so far would require me to pay to file, although I didn't have to pay last year or any previous year.

 

Thanks!

First enter the income:
1. go to the federal income section

Fellowship income

Thanks Amy, that is what I was trying previously. Unfortunately when I have tried to do this TurboTax wanted me to pay for the basic plan instead of the free option. Is there not a way this year to report this income without using the paid version of TurboTax?

Fellowship income

A fake w2 is the equivalent if you have the information you could go that route. If the IRS asks, you can show the income was entered. Otherwise, I am out of thoughts.
