Lebron James Offers FREE College To Students

Lebron James  will help fund up to 1,100 kids to get the university experience he never had with his I Promise program.

James and the University of Akron will reward kids in Akron, Ohio for meeting the “attendance and grade” requirements with free college tuition provided by the foundation and the university.

“I think it’s probably one of the best things I’ve ever been apart of. This is very special to me. As a kid growing up in the inner city and as an African American kid, you don’t really think past high school because it’s not possible or your family can’t support you. For us to be able to do something like this … it means so much.” Lebron James

LeBron has been sponsoring the program for the past five years, with students ranging from the third to the seventh grade.
