Last March, Mick Jagger tragically lost his longtime love, L’Wren Scott, to suicide.
And now, The Rolling Stones rocker, 71, is honoring the late fashion designer by establishing a scholarship to fund some much-deserving students’ fashion educations.
The grant will allow one master’s degree student per year over a period of three years to enroll in the elite, London-based college, Central Saint Martins. The scholarship will cover both tuition costs and living expenses for each student, the school announced this past weekend.

L’Wren — who passed away at age 49 on March 17, 2014 — had been a close friend of the college’s former course director, the late Louise Wilson.
The institution’s current director, Fabio Piras, said the college is “very grateful to receive this extremely generous scholarship package” from the iconic singer.
Mick and L’Wren met in 2001 at a photo shoot and began dating soon after. Upon her death, the couturier reportedly left her entire estate — estimated to be worth about $9 million — to the musician.
‘The Associated Press’ was the first to announce this news.
