About the program:
STARTALK is a federally funded program to encourage the development of critical language skills. The UNM Arabic STARTALK program is an intensive Arabic class that focuses on connections between New Mexico and Arab communities past and present. Thirty-six students of varying ages and Arabic proficiency levels will be selected to participate in the program. Selection will be based on evidence of interest in the program, prior academic performance, and teacher/counselor letters of recommendation. All program activities, including lunch, will be free of charge for students. Federal funding has been awarded for Summer 2020, but program is contingent upon receipt of funds from the federal government. Further information can be found at fll.unm.edu.
