The Maass Research Grant
The Maass Grant is open to individuals pursuing graduate studies which involve the extensive use of original manuscripts.
The grant is named in memory of humanitarian, benefactor and legendary collector Richard Maass, one of the founders of the Manuscript Society. Applicants must be pursuing a graduate degree at an accredited College or University that holds institutional membership in The Manuscript Society and be formally sponsored by that institutional member. The Grant is to be used for expenses related directly to research using original manuscripts.
