About Asian University for Women (AUW):

Founded in 2008 and located in Chittagong, Bangladesh, AUW is the
first of its kind: a regional institution dedicated to women’s education and
leadership development — international in outlook but rooted in the contexts
and aspirations of the people of Asia. Chartered by the Parliament of
Bangladesh, AUW exists solely to support a rising network of women leaders,
entrepreneurs, and change makers from across the region. It seeks out women who
have significant academic potential, demonstrate courage and a sense of outrage
at injustice, and are empathic to the woes of other people.

their home countries, while about 25% go on to pursue graduate studies at other
institutions of higher learning including Oxford, Stanford, Columbia, New York
University, Duke, Surrey, SOAS, and Ewha, among others.
