Biliteracy Pathway Awards are given to elementary and middle school students who are developing proficiency in English and an additional language. Coordinated by the Language Opportunity Coalition (LOC), the awards are designed to create a pathway for long-term language learning and prepare students to earn the Massachusetts State Seal of Biliteracy at high school graduation.

The position may be expanded or extended if additional funding is received. The work can be carried out on a flexible self-paced schedule.
