Seeking remote writers and researchers to help promote a university for women in Bangladesh

Higher education has largely been a domain of the elite, everywhere. To help break this monopoly of the elite and open the prospects of higher education to talent from all corners, the Asian University for Women (AUW) was set up in 2008 in Bangladesh as an independent, international university dedicated to educating women from excluded communities. In autumn, AUW will begin its new year with 1600 students from nearly 20 countries — almost all of whom are studying on a full scholarship. When selecting students, we focus on demonstration of courage, a sense of outrage at injustice and empathy. It is our hope that as more and more AUW students graduate, they will form a widening regional network of emerging women leaders driving change for the dignity and betterment of all.

We are seeking outstanding and sympathetic writers/researchers who can help in developing fundraising materials for the university. Such materials could range from general brochures to specific proposals establishing graduate schools or particular niche programs. Exceptionally strong research and writing skills are key to the success of the chosen candidates.

Hourly wages to be paid in US dollars will be competitive and commensurate with experience. 

Please send a cover letter outlining the basis of your interest, your qualifications and an indication of your likely time availability. Please feel free to share writing examples that show your style of writing and your ability to critically present research in making arguments.

About Asian University for Women (AUW):

Founded in 2008 and located in Chittagong, Bangladesh, AUW is the first of its kind: a regional institution dedicated to women’s education and leadership development through liberal arts and sciences education. It is international in outlook but rooted in the contexts and aspirations of the people of Asia. Chartered by the Parliament of Bangladesh, AUW exists solely to support a rising network of women leaders, entrepreneurs, and changemakers from across the region. It seeks out women who show significant academic achievement and potential, demonstrate courage and a sense of outrage at injustice, and are empathic to the woes of other people.

1160 students from 17 countries currently attend AUW: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Syria, Timor Leste, Vietnam, and Yemen. More than 85% of AUW students are on full or near-full scholarships funded by supporters from around the world. The University has graduated over a thousand students to date. A majority of AUW graduates secure employment in the private and public sectors in their home countries while about 25% go on to pursue graduate studies at other institutions of higher learning including Oxford, Cambridge, Johns Hopkins, Stanford, Columbia, Duke, Brandeis and Tufts, among others.
