Universities Funding Framework
Public and Private universities in Kenya are allocated government grants based on the number of governments sponsored students and the program they are undertaking. In addition, universities have other sources of income that supplement government grants. This is in addition to other Sources of Income in public universities such as Government allocation, Recurrent Expenditure, Capital Expenditure, Tuition fees, Income generating activities and other incomes.
To ensure equity, transparency and sustainability in apportioning funds, the Universities funding framework has been developed. It stipulates the condition for institutional and student eligibility for funding. For implementation purposes, the framework is presented in a funding model that uses measurable and objective parameters. The framework is applicable to accredited universities and/or recognized by CUE and students placed by KUCCPS and/or admitted in those universities.
