Young Scholars face daunting costs when they go to see manuscripts at distant repositories. Shortfalls in funding can imperil studies that touch the heart of the Manuscript Society’s purpose.

The Manuscript Society’s Maass Research Grant helps to close those gaps. An annual grant of $5,000 allows scholars to explore collections vital to their work. Students receive the funds through their institutions, which must be members of the society. All the money goes to the students; the institutions keep none of it.
