aslongas you can claim your doughter , a doctoral student, as your qualified relative(not as your qualifying child), then yes; you can claim her on your return;she must have made less than $4k in gross income during 2016; You must have provided more than half of the individual's total support during the year.she is still considered to be living with you during any period of time when either of you are temporarily away from home due to school, business, military service, medical care, or vacation.When you claim a Qualifying Relative as a dependent, you can claim a special kind of tax deduction called an exemption. An exemption is like a tax deduction, but an exemption is subtracted from your agi before your taxable income is calculated
