The primary attention was paid to the study of normative documents and the generalization of practical experience of financial and economic support of higher education seekers in the mentioned countries. The study of the specified world experience was carried out to develop and present in this article appropriate financial and economic models of support for those seeking educational services in Ukraine. As a result of the research, the author proposed the following set of supporting models of funding: public, business, loan, and self-financing, which should be implemented in Ukraine together and directed to different categories of students.
