Education, Exploration, and Empowerment: Highlighting the Asian University for Women Teaching Fellowship

The Asian University for Women (AUW) aims to provide education, skill-building, and empowerment for women of developing countries unable to access higher education due to a lack of opportunities for women, danger to safety, or economic concerns. The AUW teaching fellowship connects recent graduates from liberal arts colleges to teach courses to these women, who consist of recent Afghan and Rohingya refugees, as well as women recruited from garment factories, Madrasa schools, and farming families in Bangladesh and other Asian and Middle Eastern countries. Fellows will teach English, math, or computer science courses for one year in Chittagong, Bangladesh, and will also be able to introduce a passion of their choice to their students, ranging from sports and crafting to sciences and chess. 

Teaching fellows will begin their time in July 2023 and teach for one year on AUW’s Chittagong, Bangladesh campus. Fellows will be provided with furnished faculty housing with 24 hour security, free transportation to and from the AUW campus, free access to campus dining halls, and a monthly stipend of $1,000. Traveling opportunities and excursions will be provided to explore Bangladesh as well.
