How did the University determine the amounts to include in Form 1098-T Box 5 - Scholarships or Grants?

The figure in Box 5 - Scholarships or Grants includes scholarships, grants, and if applicable, payments made by a third party under a formal billing arrangement (i.e. outside scholarships, employer provided educational assistance (regardless of taxability), military, etc.) which have been administered by the University of Wisconsin System. If you received other forms of outside scholarships and grants not administered by the University of Wisconsin System, it is your responsibility to adjust the figure accordingly. Third party payments do not include payments made by your parent or other individuals.
