Founded in 2008 and located in Chittagong, Bangladesh, Asian University for Women 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. Students from 15 countries attend AUW. This University exists solely to educate and otherwise 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. A majority of AUW students are first in their family to enter university; 98% of AUW's students are on full or near-full scholarship funded by donors from around the world. A majority of AUW graduates find employment in their home countries while about 25% go on to pursue graduate studies. AUW graduates and former students have been admitted to Stanford, Oxford, Columbia, Brandeis, Surrey, Duke, Sussex, Trento, London School of Hygiene, SOAS, Ewha and a host of other leading universities in the world.
