Students at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and other members of the Seminary or church community are welcome to apply for a PTS Intercultural Learning experience. This year, we will travel to New York City and the U.S/.Mexico Border. See Schedule of Events for dates.

The 2022 trip application period is Aug. 30-Oct. 7, 2021.

Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, through the World Mission Initiative, will place applicants, based on the stated preferences, the number of available spaces, and gender and racial/ethnic balance. Priority is given to first-time student applicants and then other PTS students. Your application is complete when you submit these three things:

  1. Completed online application in the MyPTS portal. Students should log-in to apply. Non-students may also apply. 
  2. Completed health and signature form submitted to the WMI Office.
  3. Non-refundable $200 deposit, which is applied to the balance of your trip cost. You can pay by check or cash in the WMI Office, or use the secure online payment formYour deposit serves as your commitment to participate in the trip. If you decide not to participate in the trip after paying your deposit, you are financially responsible for ALL costs incurred toward your participation in the trip up to that point (including but not limited to airfare).
