The significant financial allocations invested in supporting students academically denotes the importance attached to the impact of these allocations. This study provided explanatory insights into the contribution of financial aids to students’ performance. An analysis of 109 QU students was conducted using a two-approach quantitative method. Significant differences exist in the academic performance of both groups in favor of the beneficiaries, especially based on the financial support type to the advantage of the ‘merit-based aids’. Gender, however, does not significantly influence financial aid delivery. According to the findings, policymakers, financial decision-makers and educators can improve students’ low academic performance by sharing best practices.


Keywords –Financial aids, Academic performance, QU, Statistical analysis, Educational production function.
