U of I Gets $188,000 from Penn State Settlement
The University of Illinois will get money from a legal settlement between the Big Ten Conference and Penn State. The U of I will get $188,000, and plans to share it with four area agencies that help families deal with child abuse trauma.
The money comes after Penn State's child sex abuse scandal involving former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
Each of the four organizations will get just over $44,000.
