POINT programme (Support for Internationalization of Charles University) is one of the supporting tools of financing activities aimed to increase the level of internationalisation at Charles University (CU). Goal of this programme is to support short term internationalization activities. The programme is based on Rector´s Measure.

It gives students an opportunity to gain financial support for following activities:

  • Support for participation in or stays of CU students at summer schools (excluding language courses);
  • Short-term unpaid student internships up to a maximum of 3 weeks,
  • Participation in international competitions and championships,
  • Participation in student conferences (a professional conference that students can attend. A prerequisite for granting financial support is active participation, i.e. paper presentation.)
  • Attending meetings related to the internationalisation of Charles University activities

The preference is given to an active student participation on workshops and seminars in a lenght of  up to 3 weeks.

For faculties and other units of CU it brings opportunities to get support for the organisation of international summer schools of a non-profitable nature.


Applications can be submitted twice a year – in the spring from 1st of April till 30th of April and in the autumn from 1th of November till 30th of November.

In the autumn call it is possible to apply for financial support for activities which will take place throughout the following calendar year. 

Applicants can apply for a grant for activities that start no earlier than 1.5. (after the end of receiving applications for the spring round) and 1.12. (after the end of the autumn round).
