Teen Who Sued Parents For College Tuition Scores $56,000 Scholarship

| by Jonathan Wolfe

Rachel Canning, the 18-year-old teen who tried to sue her parents for college tuition and child support, will be headed to school this fall with a nice scholarship.

Canning announced on Sunday that she will attend Western New England University this fall with a $56,000 scholarship. That scholarship money won’t stretch as far as you may think, though, as the private school costs a whopping $46,000 a year.

“Decision made,” Canning wrote on March 30. “WNE U class of 2018 BME Major w/ 56,000$ scholarship.”

There’s no word yet on how Canning will finance the other estimated $128,000 her college degree will cost after her scholarship, but I have a feeling it will involve the same people she was trying to sue in court a few weeks back. After all, to use her words, she is not yet an “emancipated” adult.

Canning dropped her lawsuit on March 18 after reconciling with her parents and moving back in with them. At the time, the law firm representing her parents said the family was “happy to be reunited and thankful that their daughter is back home.”
