Stipends vs Fellowships vs Grants

I’m looking for some guidance on the money received by a student and the reporting on the T1.

The individual received $13,000 for fellowship and $21,953 as a stipend. The individual is studying PhD degree (not in medicine). These amounts were reported on a T4A slip in box 105.

How should these amounts be reported on the T1? I do not believe 100% of the amounts received should be tax-exempt.

Thanks in advance for your guidance.

What type of organization issued the T4A?

The University of Toronto.
