Cultural Reimbursement

Boston University in Madrid encourages students to take advantage of cultural enrichment opportunities throughout Spain by defraying the cost of participating in such activities. 


Students on the program are reimbursed up to a maximum of 7€ per receipt they turn in, and may be reimbursed multiple times for museums, exhibitions, theatre and dance performances, religious sites, tours, movies, and more, as long as they are Spanish cultural activities. Make sure you remember to ask for the receipt from the activity, we can’t reimburse you without it! 

If you have questions about reimbursements or qualifying activities, please come to the office and ask us. We’re here to help!
