“I am very grateful to receive this extremely generous scholarship package, gifted by Mick Jagger in L’Wren Scott’s name,” Course Director Fabio Piras, said in a statement, via WWD. “Our students sacrifice much to take up this course and work extremely hard when they are here. I am proud of the fact that this course … continues to be recognized as a major contributor to the future of the global fashion industry.”

The scholarship (for students enrolled in the school’s MA fashion program) will begin in October and will cover all the fees for one student each year, over the course of three years.

Scott, who was famous for dressing stars like Sarah Jessica Parker and Nicole Kidman, committed suicide in March. She was 49.

“She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me,” Jagger said in a statement after her sudden death. “I have been touched by the tributes that people have paid to her, and also the personal messages of support that I have received.”
