Financing Kenya’s higher education can hardly be said to encourage equity, access and quality. The situation is further aggravated by governme nt’s plummeting financial support for higher education and the absence of elaborate and effe ctive student financing schemes at the lower levels of the educational system. Against this context, this paper seeks to discuss the evolution of funding of higher education in Kenya and how changing funding policies have impacted on equity, access and quality. Given that no single funding model can satisfy demands of equity, access and quality, an eclectic mix of various funding approaches is recommended.
