    My son graduates from high school this afternoon. He will be attending UW-Madison this fall majoring in Biomedical Engineering. Going in as a sophomore with 31 credits earned during his high school years.
    Received a letter this morning informing him that he had won a James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship.
    Just thought I would pat him on the back.
    Go Badgers!

    Scholarships are taxable income. Does that make sense?

    Yes but tuition can be written off so it all washes out in the end.
