Contribution/ Originality
This study is one of very few studies which have investigated the impact of financial Fund provided by universities to Academic stuff on the competitiveness of higher education institutions. This research is important at both the academic and practical levels. Academically, few studies are concerned with exploring the relationship between financial Fund provided by universities to Academic stuff and the competitiveness of higher education institutions. Most of the studies are concentrating on the profitability side of universities. So the study can contribute to the accumulated knowledge in this area. From practical point of view, few universities in developing countries lack the link of funding with the performance criteria. Performance-based funding is a concept that is understood differently.
