Internationalisation - POINT

Support for the Internationalisation of Charles University

Financial support for short-term students' mobility

Support for the Internationalisation of Charles University ("POINT programme" and "CU") is one of the instruments of financial support for activities aimed at increasing the level of internationalisation of CU.

Pay attention to the current Rector’s Directive

Rector´s Directive No. 27/2023

What it’s all about?

Financial support for:

Student mobility activities

  • Support for participation in or stays of Charles University students at summer schools (with the exception of language courses);

  • Short-term unpaid student internships up to a maximum of 3 weeks,

  • Participation in International competitions and championships,

  • Participation in Student conferences (only with active participation); or

  • Attending meetings related to the internationalisation of Charles University activities.

The maximum support: 40 000 CZK.

Faculty activities

  • Organisation of international summer schools and other extracurricular events organised by CU faculties or other units

    In accordance with the Framework for State Aid for Research and Development and Innovation (2014/C 198/01).

The maximum support: 80 000 CZK.

Limitations and important information for student activities

  • The support allocated is provided for a defined purpose, i.e., it is tied to the specific applicant, activity, and implementation dates.

  • It is not possible to apply for financial support from POINT programme and the Mobility Fund of Charles University for the same activity.

  • Student conferences - active participation (participation with a contribution) is required.

  • A student can be granted financial support for travel, accommodation, and meals. The student is not allowed to apply for a contribution to the participation fee.

  • Financial support is primarily given to those applicants who have not yet received it from the POINT program in the past.

  • Within the spring round (application period from April 1 to April 30), it is possible to financially support activities starting from May 1 of the same year.

    Within the autumn round (application period from November 1 to November 30), it is possible to financially support activities starting from December 1 of the same year.

    Retroactive reimbursement of activities is not possible.

How to apply?

The procedure is quite simple:

  1. Fill in an application via (login = your student number, password: same as in other UNI systems):

    Select: POINT a) for student activity or POINT b) organization of summer schools by faculties

  2. Submit the application (including attachments) within the deadline (spring round: 1. 4. - 30. 4. or autumn round: 1. 11. - 31. 11.)

  3. Subsequently, the application (duly and timely submitted) is included to the competition and submitted for evaluation by the POINT Programme Board and after to the Rector

  4. Results:

    (+) the application received full support (how much you requested, so much you received);

    (+/-) the application has received partial support (you have received reduced support);

    (-) the application was not supported.

    The results are sent by e-mail (which you provide in the application) and are also updated in IS

  5. If you were included to into (+) and (+/-) groups, your faculty will recieve the amount of support you were granted. The faculty will pay you this amount in the form of a scholarship.

    The supported activities must be concluded with an evaluation report and a confirmation of a stay. These documents should be delivered within one month of the termination of the project or return from the study stay (all via online system)

If the applicant breaches his/her obligations to submit the final documents, he/she will be obliged to return the amount provided, or a part thereof.

If you fall into a (-) group (so your application was not supported) - nothing happens, you can apply again in another call of the program or from another fund. 

What is watch out for

or why the application might not receive (required) support?


  • The application did not meet the basic criteria (timely submission, proper filling of the fields, delivery of attachments)

  • It is not possible to support the activity according to the rules (summer language school, the activity has already taken place, the activity was supported by Mobility Fund /another university source)


  • Quality of submitted application

  • Representation of applications from different faculties

  • Exploitation of allocated resources

  • Justification of the contribution of the activity to support the internationalisation of activities of the CU academic community

  • The possibility of support from other university sources (for example, other sources for foreign students mobility)

  • Efficiency and rationale for the use of assigned funds

Compliance with all the conditions (administrative and qualitative) does not mean automatic allocation of financial support.
