My daughter who is my dependent spent three months volunteering at a hospital in 2016. It was too far away for her to commute so she rented a room. I paid for all her expenses. What can I deduct?

Nothing, unfortunately.  None of that is a deductible expense, it is personal. You get to take the exemption for your daughter if you claim her as a dependent.
