Lew Borer Jr. was a past Michigan B.A.S.S. Chapter Federation President and one of the original 6 founding fathers of the Michigan Bass Busters of Oakland County – formed in September of 1972. The club was the first B.A.S.S. club, forming a year before the start of the Michigan B.A.S.S. Chapter Federation (original name of Michigan B.A.S.S. Nation) in 1973.

Mr. Borer was the dominating force in creating the Scholarship Fund program. The Fund was named in his honor for his many years of dedication and service to our Michigan B.A.S.S. Nation.

The eligible applicants for scholastic aid are Michigan B.A.S.S. Nation members and their children. Children, for the purpose of this constitution, shall be understood to mean natural, adopted and stepchildren. (Excluded are brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and grandchildren.)

These applicants have priority status for all funds. Should no Michigan B.A.S.S. Nation applicants qualify for funds, then members of B.A.S.S may be granted funding.

The Scholarship Committee meets once a year, and makes awards no later than the 31st of December of each year. The Committee, by majority vote, decides which applicants are eligible for scholastic aid. The Scholarship Committee helps provide scholastic aid for as many applicants as possible as far as is practical and within the guidelines set down in the scholarship Constitution.
