"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

have you tried right clicking on the folder and selecting properties / permissions?

EXAMPLE 1
This example assigns permissions for Ed to access Ayla's Marketing mailbox folder and applies the Owner role to his access of that folder.
Add-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity ayla@contoso.com:\Marketing -User Ed@contoso.com -AccessRights Owner

here is the script that I use to grant a user read-only access to existing mailbox.

# Grant read-only access to user mailboxes       #

#Defined User Inputs

$Mailbox = read-host -prompt "Enter username of the mailbox that needs to be accessed"
$User = Read-Host -prompt "Enter username of the person that requires access"

#Granting Review Rights to mailbox

Write-Host -ForegroundColor Green "Granting $User $Access Rights to $Mailbox mailbox at the top level"

Add-MailboxPermission -Identity $Mailbox -User $User -AccessRights ReadPermission -InheritanceType all

$exclusions = @("/Sync Issues",

$mailboxfolders = @(Get-MailboxFolderStatistics $Mailbox | Where {!($exclusions -icontains $_.FolderPath)} | Select FolderPath)

foreach ($mailboxfolder in $mailboxfolders)
{
    $folder = $mailboxfolder.FolderPath.Replace("/","\")
    if ($folder -match "Top of Information Store")
    {
       $folder = $folder.Replace(“\Top of Information Store”,”\”)
    }
    $identity = "$($mailbox):$folder"
    Write-Host "Adding $user to $identity with Reviewer permissions"
    Add-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity $identity -User $user -AccessRights Reviewer -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
