I am having a bit of a rough time trying to find the answer for "Student college grant and scholarship aid reported to the IRS in your mother's income. Includes AmeriCorps benefits (awards, living allowances, and interest accrual payments), as well as grant and scholarship portions of fellowships and assistantships". Would it be from the "8863 Education Credits (American Opportunity and Lifetime learning credits)" page? If so, what box would it be because i only got grants that school year.

    No, it would be if your mother worked for Americorps and got a stipend to either pay some of her loans or yours, or a grant or scholarship for HER working as a fellowship/assistantship; she'd have to pay taxes on this money. It would be uncommon to have either of those things (working for AmeriCorps or being in school with an assistantship).
