How do I edit the amount of scholarships I received?

Turbo tax has listed that I received a scholarship for my current education (over $20k), which is not true. There was an error on the original 1098-T form, which had the same amount of money, but I have since received a new form that lists my scholarships and grants as $0, which is accurate. I cannot edit this information via TurboTax, so I'm not sure what to do! Please help.
