Asian University for Women 2020, Bangladesh (Scholarships Available)

Asian University for Women is the first of its kind: an independent, regional institution dedicated to excellence, women’s education and leadership development – global in outlook, but rooted in the contexts and aspirations of the people of Asia.

Located in Chittagong, Bangladesh, AUW exists solely to educate and empower a rising network of women leaders through the transformative power of American-style liberal arts and sciences education. Open to women from all walks of life, AUW particularly encourages women who are the first in their family to get university education. 
AUW is a diverse community comprised of students, faculty, and staff members from a wide range of economic, cultural, locational (rural/urban), ethnic, and religious backgrounds. The university is required under its Charter to make reasonable efforts to recruit up to 25% of the student body from Bangladesh, but it is otherwise committed to bringing together young women from the entire region – primarily South, Southeast, and West Asia – and to create an environment designed to help them explore their similarities and differences in an atmosphere of mutual respect. The University also accepts “stateless students” and exchange students from the United States, Europe and East Asia, as well as others from outside Asia.
Today AUW students are from 19 countries namely Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Palestine, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Syria, Timor Leste, Vietnam, and Yemen.
General Requirement:
  • Have completed 10+2, a total of 12 years of education;

  • Have received an average of 60% of marks or equivalent grades in the final examinations, including a minimum score of 60% on both English and mathematics exams;
