The NCCSD received the email below from a Moroccan doctoral student who can come to the U.S. to study, and just needs an advisor here. If you are interested or would like more information, please contact them directly. I am sharing this with permission.

I hope you are doing well.
This is Amine Taswari from Casablanca, Morocco. I am a visually impaired PhD student, doing research in Disability Studies. I am looking for an American university professor to co-supervise my PhD research. I want to apply for a scholarship program that funds international doctoral students' trip to the U.S. to conduct research at an American university for one year. Part of the application folder is that applicants should have their research proposal signed by both their main local supervisor and an American co-supervisor. In my case, my Moroccan supervisor has expressed his approval to sign the proposal, and I am still looking for an American supervisor. Could you please spread the word on my behalf to your colleagues at the center if any of them is interested or recommend some names of professors whom I can directly get in touch with.
Thanks a lot for your help.
Ps My research area addresses the issue of visual impairment and social inclusion in the Moroccan context.
