Asian University for Women

The Asian University for Women (AUW) focuses on educating and empowering women from marginalized communities across 18 countries in Asia and Middle East. It endeavors to provide talented women with the opportunity and training to overcome institutional barriers inflicted by biases against women. AUW seeks out women who demonstrate courage, outrage at injustice, and are moved by the woes of other people to join its multicultural and multi-faith campus for two years of intense preparatory work in English, Math, Information Technology and critical thinking skills, followed by an internationally-accredited undergraduate program. All students are encouraged to complete three internships and are supported in launching their professional careers in public or the private sectors in their home countries, or in pursuing graduate studies.
