1099-MISC for a stipend payment - where do I put it?

In the acceptance contract, it states:
"A stipend is generally an amount paid for the benefit of a student or an attendee of a class, workshop, or
training project for their attendance or participation ONLY, not for services rendered. Stipends are payments
that can be used by the recipient to defray expenses such as tuition, fees, books, supplies, and living expenses.
Stipend recipients cannot be USRA employees. An amount paid for “services rendered” is a “wage” under the
IRS regulations and must be paid as salaries and wages. Stipend payments cannot be tied to any obligation for
past, present or future services. There can be no employer/employee relationship associated with stipend
payments and there are no fringe benefits associated with stipend payments."
This is for a USRA NASA internship, and the stipend was $9600. I believe this would fall under a taxable fellowship/scholarship but I am not sure where to put it. The internship was related to my coursework and I received school credit for it.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
