This is a proposal to encode the Old Uyghur script in the international standard Unicode. The script was published in the Unicode Standard version 14.0 in September 2021. The Old Uyghur script (ISO 15924: OUgr)  flourished between 8c and 17c CE. Though originally used to write medieval Turkic languages, it later was used for writing languages as Chinese, Mongolian, Tibetan, and Arabic. 

Financial support was provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities for the Universal Scripts Project (PR-253360-17), part of the Script Encoding Initiative at UC Berkeley, and the Unicode Adopt-a-Character program. The Unicode Consortium hosts the document registry that contains this proposal.
