The China Australia Millennial Project (CAMP) Summit is returning in 2018, and UTS is thrilled to announce seven scholarships are available for UTS alumni and students.

A bilateral business incubator traversing a broad range of industries, CAMP unites exceptional young leaders and innovators from China and Australia who are passionate about designing industry solutions, learning design-thinking and strengthening the Australia-China relationship.

"The rise, or return, of China is up there with the digital revolution as among the greatest moments shaping the 21st century, and it’s time to get on board,' says UTS Alumni Award recipient and CAMP CEO Andrea Myles, who co-founded the program, the first of its kind worldwide, in 2014.

Applications are now open for the 2018 Summit, which will bring together 100 new young innovators from Australia and China for two five-day innovation incubators. The program includes a five-day face-to-face summit in Beijing, a 90-day online program and finally a five-day face-to-face summit in Sydney.

These young leaders will build social venturing skills and they will be mentored by global changemakers as part of networking, skills building and industry-related activities. Aspiring social entrepreneur and UTS graduate Kersti Muras (Bachelor of Business, 2017), attended CAMP in 2017, describing the experience as "eye opening".

"Visiting co-working spaces and incubators for start-ups and listening to personal stories from entrepreneurs was definitely a highlight," said Kersti.

"The energy and enthusiasm from other delegates in the group was also amazing and hearing about their interests and passions, developing those personal connections is something that I won't forget."
