If I am making $12,000 over the course of the summer at an internship and the company is withholding Federal income taxes as well as Medicare and SS taxes am I eligible for a tax refund if I file a tax return separately?

A little more info: He is in the upper income tax bracket and pays my tuition without any scholarships or grants which are eligible for exemptions.

Thank you
