In a very short period of about 14 years Jamia Hamdard has emerged as one of the most important centres of learning in Delhi. Moreover, its accreditation by National Accreditation and Assessment Council (NAAC), which has given it ‘A’ grade, has resulted in massive influx of students to its faculties. University has scaled new heights as it offers one of the best faculty, research infrastructure and student amenities in India. University receives generous support from Hamdard National Foundation which was set up by its founder, Hakeem Abdul Hameed Sahib for promotion of education amongst the most needy and poor section of the society. University also receives partial support form Government agencies. However, all this is not enough. In order to strengthen our academic activities we need moral as well as financial support from our well-wishers. We are happy to inform that many well-wishers and friends of our mission have come forward to join hands with us. Fifteen scholarships have been constituted out of the contributions received from generous contributors (see the list given below).

It is also important to enlighten you at this juncture that most of the students who join our university are not from very sound financial background. Many of them study here on loans from banks and other sources. A small contribution for them will go a long way in easing out their financial difficulties. We try to help them out. University has created Student Aid Fund. A number of students have been benefited with this fund.

We will be happy to receive contribution from our Alumni, Well-wishers, Corporate World, Governmental and Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs) and Charitable Organizations from all over the world. Rest assured, contribution would be utilized for meaningful purposes. Names of students and his/her academic progress will be intimated to the contributor, if wished so.
