My parents did NOT pay for my tuition, books, or living expenses. They did did give me perhaps ten dollars per week for spending money. Every Summer I worked in a factory as a Quality Control Inspector from the middle of June to the middle of September. In that way I earned enough for Room & Board plus Fees and other incidental expenses.

I started university as an early admissions student <I was 16>, sponsored by a Physics Professor.

IIRC, you also had a fencing scholarship. Not everyone gets one of those.
