i have to disagree, it does make a difference to whom the scholarship is paid.....and not all living expenses are taxable.
at any rate, i would apply my scholarships to tuition and books first, then use the loans for living expenses. that way you are sure to be in the clear.
but vap is right, dont listen to blowhards on an internet chat board, ask your financial aid...although if they are like most finaid offices, they arent worth the dynamite to blow them to hell. ask your tax prof, that would prolly be better
