Are fellowships taxable?

I was recently awarded a fellowship from a foundation based in Lausanne for a one year program under the auspices of the Faculty of Biology and Medicine (UniL).
Anyone in the same situation? Are fellowships tax-deductable?

Re: Are fellowships taxable?

Where does your fellowship come from? The University? Swiss government? You're home government? Home University?

Will you be getting a paycheck through the university where you do your fellowship? If so, I believe that yes it would be subject to taxes.

The fellowship comes from a greek-swiss foundation which is based in Lausanne. So, it's definetely not a home goverment/university nor a Swiss goverment grant. However I'm not sure if I'll get a paycheck through the university or the Foundation itself.
