About the Scholarship

Asian University for Women (AUW) has announced up to 250 new scholarships for the nationals of Afghanistan for its spring 2022 Term that begins in January 2022.These scholarships are dedicated toward the women drawn from all 34 provinces of Afghanistan across different ethnic backgrounds. These special scholarships are earmarked only for Afghan nationals.  The scholarships cover five years of room, board, tuition,  primary health care,  costs of books and supplies, an on-campus work-study job intended to defray any incidental personal expenses and one round-trip ticket from Kabul to Chittagong where AUW’s campus is located.  AUW seeks students who demonstrate strong academic records and potential as well as a commitment to service in the education and development of others in the community.  They will study at AUW, side-by-side with their sisters from 18 other countries,  including Bangladesh, Pakistan, India, Indonesia, Palestine, Senegal, Syria and Yemen.

Why is AUW Different from Others?

AUW recognizes that proficiency in the English language is not a measure of anyone’s potential success as a student or, as a citizen.  Although the medium of instruction at AUW is in English, no incoming student should be inhibited to apply for admission to AUW because of inadequate prior exposure to English.  AUW offers a two-year academic bridge program in the English language and other academic skills that can prepare students to succeed adequately in the undergraduate program that follows. It is the young women’s motivation to learn and succeed that is the single biggest predictor of success.

Undergraduate Program & Majors Offered

AUW offers a two-year academic bridge program in the English language and other academic skills that can prepare students to succeed adequately in the undergraduate program that follows.

AUW Scholarships cover costs of up to two years in the preparatory courses offered under the rubric of our Pathways for Promise and Access Academy as well as undergraduate programs in the following fields:

  • Environmental science (B.Sc.)
  • Public Health (B.Sc.)
  • Bioinformatics (B.Sc.)
  • Economics (B.A.)
  • Politics, Philosophy, and Economics (PPE) (B.A.)

Who can Apply?

AUW particularly welcomes students who would be the first in their family to enter university.  It strongly encourages students from ethnic or religious minorities to apply.  At least ten scholarships out of the 250 allocated for Afghan nationals have been reserved for members of the Kuchi community. Interested applicants can apply online by clicking this link https://forms.gle/BFu2yzpvfG69iT9Q8
