You can try this:

Get-Mailbox | Foreach-Object {Add-MailboxFolderPermission $_”:\Calendar” -User john@domain.com -AccessRights Reviewer}

Get-Mailbox | Foreach-Object {Add-MailboxFolderPermission $_”:\kalander” -User john@domain.com -AccessRights Reviewer}

Open in new window

Adjust the username as needed.

I had tried this:
Get-Mailbox | Foreach-Object {Add-MailboxFolderPermission $_”:\kalender” -User calendar@xyz.com -AccessRights FullAccess}

but it throws error: cannot process argument transformation on parameter AccessRights . Cannot convert value FullAccess

FullAccess is not a value you can pass to this.  You will need to pass one of the following:

Author -  CreateItems, DeleteOwnedItems, EditOwnedItems, FolderVisible, ReadItems

Contributor  - CreateItems, FolderVisible

Editor  - CreateItems, DeleteAllItems, DeleteOwnedItems, EditAllItems, EditOwnedItems, FolderVisible, ReadItems

None  - FolderVisible

NonEditingAuthor  - CreateItems, FolderVisible, ReadItems

Owner  - CreateItems, CreateSubfolders, DeleteAllItems, DeleteOwnedItems, EditAllItems, EditOwnedItems, FolderContact, FolderOwner, FolderVisible, ReadItems

PublishingEditor  - CreateItems, CreateSubfolders, DeleteAllItems, DeleteOwnedItems, EditAllItems, EditOwnedItems, FolderVisible, ReadItems

PublishingAuthor -  CreateItems, CreateSubfolders, DeleteOwnedItems, EditOwnedItems, FolderVisible, ReadItems

Reviewer -  FolderVisible, ReadItems
