AUT 2005 - HE income24 SHEFC grant The grant allocations to Scottish HEIs by SHEFC (SHEFC HE/08/05), show a lower rate of increase for 2005-6, of 3.4%. There are various reasons for this: the recurrent grants to institutions do not include all the funding SHEFC will allocate; the funding for SHEFC is in financial years, while the funding by SHEFC is in academic financial years. AUT(S) says there are various elements of funding made during the year which bring the level of funding increase to HEIs to ~6.5%.
