We have tentatively postponed the program start-date to June 6th of 2021, so please send in your applications as planned. We will be continuing to update our website with any new information we receive from STARTALK Central, which we expect to have by the end of this summer. Thank you very much for your understanding and support! Stay safe and healthy!
