FEBRUARY 2019 BLOG POST By John Garland, Director of Research and Student Success

February is filled with reminders of meaningful connections for loved ones of all types – friends, family, and Valentines! And, of course our meaningful connection is with you, our Cobell Scholars and Fellows. One of the ways we are working to deepen our meaningful connection with you is through our new web-based platform, GradSnapp Connect.


GradSnapp Connect is our scholar-friendly academic and student support communication system that allows our staff to maintain meaningful connections with you during your academic journey and beyond. Likewise, GradSnapp Connect makes it easier for our Scholars and Fellows to find and communicate with one another whether on your campus or across the country. If you were awarded a Cobell Scholarship or Fellowship by October 2018 you should have received an email from me (sent to the email address found in your Cobell Scholarship profile in OASIS) asking you to follow the registration link to activate your new GradSnapp Connect account. Here is the link in case you missed it. https://connect.gradsnapp.com/iei/Account/RegisterEmail.If you’ve already registered be sure to bookmark our login portal. https://connect.gradsnapp.com/iei/. If you were awarded a Cobell Scholarship after October 2018, you will be receiving your official registration email this Spring.


As we bring more of GradSnapp Connect’s capabilities online, it will become your virtual link to the Cobell Scholarship Team and to one another! For Cobell Alumni, GradSnapp Connect will help you develop meaningful opportunities for lifelong connections with fellow Alumni across the country and around the world, as well as, career enhancing network opportunities. We are very excited about this new feature of your Scholarship experience and look forward to more meaningful connections with you!
