First Generation Scholars Network

'First Generation Scholars' is the phrase we use to describe students for whom the customs, language and culture of Durham University are alien, often because their family background does not include experience of higher education. We are proud of our First Generation Scholars Network, the first to be established at Durham University. 

Our Network is chaired by first generation scholar PhD students and works to provide a network for all first generation scholars in the department, and to improve the experiences and promote the success of first generation scholars in anthropology.
