In 1999, CBC Newsworld established the Joan Donaldson Scholarship for aspiring journalists in honour of Joan Donaldson, the founding Head of Newsworld and one of the CBC's journalistic leaders.

Throughout her distinguished career, Joan Donaldson helped talented young Canadians realize their journalistic potential in CBC newsrooms and in the classrooms of Ryerson and The University of Western Ontario.

The CBC Newsworld Joan Donaldson Scholarship continues her mission.
