Do I report reimbursement from a fellowship award for research (work) related expenses as taxable income?

I am a graduate student at a research university. I was awarded a fellowship that can only be used for research related expenses, and used this to pay housing when travelling for research.The money was not paid to me directly, but rather I paid and was later reimbursed from the fellowship fund. Would I report this reimbursement as taxable income?

Yes, this is taxable (but not as self-employment).

How you report it would depend on how they reported it, usually it is reported on a 1099-MISC. 

If you have no formal tax form, enter it as "Other Income".

Scroll down to Miscellaneous Income, 1099-A, 1099-C (the last option) under "Less Common Income" and click Start

Answer "Yes" and Continue

Type Fellowship into the description box and the amount.
