The Standard Deduction for an individual for whom an exemption can be claimed on another person's tax return is limited to the greater of:

…..$1,250 or

…..Your earned income for the year + $400 (but not more than 13,850)

 

So you would get a minimum of $1,250 to a max of 13,850.

If you are a dependent your standard deduction is limited by your earned income.
