Mick Jagger donates fashion scholarship to Central Saint Martins

Mick Jagger has donated a three-year scholarship programme for students of MA Fashion at Central Saint Martins at the University of the Arts London.

The singer will cover fees and a portion of living expenses for one student per year for three years, in memory of his long-term partner, the American designer L’Wren Scott, who died in March last year.

Central Saint Martins said in a statement that Scott had been impressed by the late Professor Louise Wilson’s “commitment to excellence and her dedication to fashion education”. Wilson also passed away last year.

Fabio Piras, course director of MA Fashion, said: “I am very grateful to receive this extremely generous scholarship package, gifted by Mick Jagger in L’Wren Scott’s name. Our students sacrifice much to take up this course and work extremely hard while they are here. I am very proud of the fact that this course, through its alumni, continues to be recognised as a major contributor to the future of the global fashion industry.”

The L’Wren Scott scholarship programme will be given to an incoming student for 2015, 2016 and 2017. The fees cover the duration of the course.
