Who Can Apply

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.
