LeBron James: College Scholarships For 1,100 Students

Thousands of kids will score a four-year college scholarship with an assist from basketball superstar LeBron James who announced he’s giving the academic scholarships to all 1,100 kids currently in his “I Promise” program. His foundation will start covering tuition costs for students entering the University of Akron in Ohio by 2021, and when this year’s seventh graders have graduated high school, which is about $34,000 per student.

The scholarship eligible kids will have to maintain academic and attendance standards set by the LeBron James Family Foundation’s I Promise Program. LeBron has been sponsoring the program for five years to promote academics and physical fitness for young people.
