Mick Jagger and L'Wren ScottThe Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger has just set up a scholarship in memory of his late girlfriend, L’Wren Scott.

Billboard Reports that the fashion scholarship will be given to one fashion student studying for their Masters at the Central Saint Martins design college in London each year, through to the 2017 school term. The scholarship will cover the cost of tuition and some living expenses as well.

Scott was a fashion designer and former model who committed suicide in March of 2014, and had been dating Jagger since 2001. After her suicide, Mick Jagger posted this statement:

“I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way. We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves. She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me. I have been touched by the tributes that people have paid to her, and also the personal messages of support that I have received. I will never forget her, Mick.”
