James told reports he plans to provide this for 1,100 kids, which would cost his foundation a total of $41.8 million at the school's current rates.
The LeBron James Family Foundation has been giving a helping hand to children from the third to the seventh grade.
James is now extending support for the kids one step further by saying he will cover their tuition costs if they meet the requirements.
A year's tuition alone at the University of Akron is around $9,500.
