The Recipient and the Beneficiary are often different (the Recipient is often a parent, the Beneficiary is the student).

This should not affect calculations in TurboTax.  As long as Education Expenses are equal to or greater than the 1099-Q distribution, the amount should not be taxable.

Scholarships/Grants are subtracted from Expenses, if you enter a 1098-T with an Amount in Box 5.  Be sure to add Room and Board, Books and other Required Expenses as 'Additional Expenses' in the Education section.
