"it's continuance must be likely for at least for 3 years after the time of closing" . Based on the information you have provided you wouldn't qualify using fellowship income. Sorry if you find this bad news. I hope the rest of your day is better.
Do you have access to Stated Income programs, which would be required for this scenario?
If you do, please let me know who's making these loans we can get approved with them....
I know Stated Income and sub prime lending is right around the corner!
