Do I have to report scholarships and other academic awards on my return?

Yes, scholarships and other academic awards are considered income and must be reported on your return. However, you can reduce the taxable amount of this income if you meet eligibility requirements for the scholarship exemption.

TurboTax automatically calculates your exemption (the amount you won't be taxed on), from the information you enter in box 105. The remaining (taxable), amount is then included in the Other Income section on your tax return.
