A semester abroad program didn’t seem likely for Alyssa Beckstead. As a University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES) biological science major with a goal of graduating in three years, Beckstead thought it would be impossible to find courses at an international university that applied to her major and allowed her to stay on track for graduation. However, a semester at the University of Hohenheim offered credits that counted as well as a $2,500 scholarship.
