Received 1099Misc with money in box 3 for a stipend for a college grant. Answers in TurboTax are not working. How do I get around the business/self-employed questions?

I have this saved from a couple years ago...the screen may be a bit different, but may help you navigate.

Federal taxes Tab (left side of screen) > Other Uncommon Income >1099MISC > Fill in the payer name & ID number, enter the money in Box 3 > Continue> Describe the reason "Stipend" > Continue> None of These Apply > Continue > No it didn't involve work like my main job > Continue > I got it in 2018 > Continue > No it didn't involve an intent to earn money > Continue > Do You have Another 1099MISC?  If not choose NO and you should be done and the income will appear on Line 21.

This still comes back as self employed and wants a sched C with business name and number and all kinds of info for the non existent business! Won't let me file unless it is entered.
