CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- The University of Illinois has received $188,000 as part of a legal settlement between the Big Ten Conference and Pennsylvania State University.

The money comes after the Pennsylvania school's child sex abuse scandal involving former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. The News-Gazette reported that the Illinois money will go to four agencies that help families deal with child abuse trauma. Each will receive about $44,500.

The school asked the United Way to help distribute the money. The group recommended that $10,000 go to create a community program focusing on education and awareness.
