The Gordon Sinclair Foundation

The Gordon Sinclair Foundation was established in 1984 by a group of friends of the late journalist and broadcaster, Gordon Sinclair, to honour his memory and recognize his contributions to Canadian journalism. In 2014 the Foundation launched the Gordon Sinclair Roving Reporter Bursary to honour the legacy of Sinclair’s style of reporting through an annual bursary meant to encourage a young Canadian journalist to undertake a challenging reporting assignment.

Gordon Sinclair Roving Reporter Bursary

The Gordon Sinclair Roving Reporter Bursary will support a research and reporting trip by an early career Canadian journalist who has recently graduated from one of Canada’s university-level journalism programs. The purpose of the $15,000 bursary will be to encourage a young journalist to get off the beaten track and to spend a considerable period away on a reporting assignment – a minimum of six weeks. To be successful, the applicant would have to outline a proposal to travel abroad or to a region of Canada that is not usually well covered by the media and to research and then prepare a substantial body of journalistic work on an important issue.
