Thamer Fund for educational support and solidarity was set-up to cater for a certain group of students who may need financial support throughout their university life.

The idea of setting up a fund to help Ajman University students who suffer from financial barriers began with the University's intention to play a pioneering and sustainable role in the domain of social responsibility. It coincided with the presence of a number of students whose difficult financial circumstances prevented them from continuing their higher education.

The late Thamer Salman, May God have mercy on him, played a prominent role in supervising the Fund to ensure its sustainability and effectiveness in supporting AU students who are facing financial problems. Thamer was the vice president of (Ajman University of Science and Technology) throughout the years 1999 - 2013. He was very much involved in the lives of students and the whole of the University’s community. Through his continuous communication with students and his commitment that needy students must pursue their education, Thamer Saeed Salman decided to launch the “Joint Fund”. The launch of this Fund was a source of relief for our students who benefitted a lot from it and managed to get their degrees. The fund continued to support a large number of AU students and was funded by the University and donors.

 In 2013, after the demise of late Thamer Saeed Salman, the University had to stand in solidarity with the founder of the “Joint Fund”, Thamer Salman. Therefore, the University decided to launch the name of Thamer on the joint fund to become “Thamer Fund for Educational Solidarity”. Since then, the Fund journey has been a good and rewarding one. Now, the fund has a board of directors, an executive committee and permanent sources of funding. It has become a bright spot in the history of the University in terms of strengthening the role of the University in the area of social responsibility.
