Andrew Barr has announced that the ACT Government is going to pay for a thousand extra students to attend CIT next year, up from 300 current scholarship places to 1,300.
- An extra 1,000 Canberrans will have access to scholarships to help them study at the Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) from 1 July this year, Minister for Education and Training Andrew Barr announced today. This is more than 3 times the number of scholarships available in previous years.

- • government services
• construction and property services
• community services and health
• innovation and business skills and
