It's not quite clear what "reimbursement from my scholarship" means. It is common for a student's scholarship to exceed his expenses and he gets the excess refunded as "spending money". If the excess amount is already included in the box 5 (1098-T) amount, there is nothing special you need to do. TurboTax will automatically calculate the taxable amount.
After entering the 1098-T, a follow up screen will ask if you had any other scholarships not shown on the 1098-T. Only if the scholarship was shown on another document (W-2, 1099) should it be entered somewhere else.
That said, be advised that the 1098-T is only an informational document. The numbers on it are not required to be entered onto your tax return. However receipt of a 1098-T frequently means you are either eligible for a tuition credit or deduction or possibly your student has taxable scholarship income. You claim the tuition credit, or report scholarship income, based on your own financial records, not the 1098-T.
