Young Cultural Bonus 2024.

To apply, young people who have turned or will turn 18 in 2024 must register and complete the application procedure on the website www.bonoculturajoven.gob.es until next September 16.

It will be essential that, in advance, interested parties obtain one of these three forms of digital identification: Cl@ve with basic registration (which can be requested and obtained by video call), Cl@ve with advanced registration (in person and for those who do not have still reached the age of 18) or the digital Certificate. Young people interested in applying for the Youth Cultural Bonus can carry out the process personally or through the representation of an adult, for which it is necessary to attach the representation form downloadable on the website, correctly signed by the beneficiary. In these cases, the family book is not a document accrediting representation.

Young people who turn 18 in 2024 who are of Spanish nationality, have legal residence in Spain, are asylum seekers, temporarily displaced or formerly supervised foreigners are entitled to this aid. According to data from the National Institute of Statistics, there are more than 525,000 potential beneficiaries throughout the country.

About the Young Cultural Bonus

Once the aid is granted, young people have one year to use the 400 euros on cultural products or services in participating establishments, which already exceed 3,300 throughout Spain. The Young Cultural Bonus works with a prepaid card that the beneficiary can have virtually on their mobile phone or receive physically at their home. With this card you can enjoy cultural experiences and products, which are divided into three sections to promote diversification of spending, with the following distribution:

  • 100 euros for physical products, for example, books, press or records.
  • 100 euros for digital products, such as subscriptions to platforms, digital press, podcasts or online video games.
  • 200 euros for performing arts: theater, opera, cinema, dance, museums…

The objective of the Ministry of Culture with this initiative has a double meaning: on the one hand, it shows the interest of a wide spectrum of the young Spanish population in culture, which this initiative helps to build loyalty as a public and cultural consumer for the future; and, on the other hand, it offers additional support to the cultural sector to recover from the crisis.

Call 2024

The Young Cultural Bonus is regulated by the Royal Decree, with indefinite validity, which the Council of Ministers approved on March 21, 2023, at the proposal of the Minister of Culture. As in the two previous calls, it has an allocation of 210 million euros in the extended General State Budgets. In 2022, the first year of validity of this initiative, a total of 277,607 people throughout Spain obtained the Young Cultural Bonus and in 2023, it rose to 319,237 beneficiaries.
