L'Wren Scott tragically took her own life in early 2014, but the designer won't soon be forgotten.
Her loved ones continue to honor and remember her, and former partner Mick Jagger has just announced a three-year scholarship in L'Wren's name to be awarded to Central Saint Martins MA in London for fashion students.
The scholarship program will begin in October 2015 and will be cover the cost of a two-year course as well as living expenses for one student each year.
They say time heals all wounds.
The Rolling Stones song and dance man recently appeared on Today to promote the James Brown biopic Get On Up that he's producing, and briefly spoke about his year since L'Wren's death.
The show aired this past Friday and Matt Lauer brought up the late fashion designer almost immediately, asking how Mick was doing these days.
Here's what Mick Jagger's response was
This just so, so tragic.
Her boyfriend, Mick Jagger, sang a special rendition of Just Like a Woman and Lisa Fischer sang Amazing Grace. Mick’s grandkids, Mazie and Zak, both read Psalm 23, and Mick’s son James Jagger read a poem.
L’Wren Scott may be gone, but she will certainly not be forgotten. We miss her already and are so glad that she was able to have a ceremony as beautiful as her.
Rest in peace, sweet angel!

It's been almost a month since L'Wren Scott passed away, and loved ones are still dealing with the unfortunate and untimely loss.
Sharing a photo of the two of them at an event, the 22-year-old wrote:
L'Wren Scott has left her entire estate, worth an estimated $9 million, to boyfriend Mick Jagger.
The estate included her $8 million condo in NYC and another $1 million worth of miscellaneous other belongings.
According to court papers, part of the designer's will read:
"I give all my jewelry, clothing, household furniture and furnishings, personal automobiles and other tangible articles of a personal nature … to Michael Philip Jagger."
Her will also indicated that nothing would go to her next of kin:
L'Wren Scott was laid to rest yesterday at Hollywood Forever Funeral Home in Los Angeles.
The service was held at All Saints Church in Pasadena and attended by a small gathering of family and close friends, including Mick Jagger, L'Wren's brother Randy Bambrough, actress and close friend Ellen Barkin, and members of Mick Jagger's family.
Reverend Ed Bacon led the service, with speeches also given by Mick Jagger, Randy Bambrough, talent agent Justinian Kfoury, costumer designer Ira M. Hammons-Glass, and Adam Glassman, creative director of O magazine.
Ellen Barkin and Mick's daughter Karis read poems at the service, while Mick's eldest daughter Jade read Psalm 139. His grandchildren, Mazie and Zak, read Psalm 23.
Randy Bambrough's daughter Hannah read Shakespeare's famous Sonnet 18, which begins with the line "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?" and explores the theme of immortality.
Finally, Bernard Fowler sang the hymn Will the Circle be Unbroken with guitar accompaniment by Dave Stewart.
Our thoughts are with L'Wren's family and friends.

While that didn’t stop her from making an appearance at Jimmy Kimmel Live in Hollywood on Tuesday, it did stop her from wearing anything but black attire.
The actress pulled off the dark monochrome look fiercely, though — how can you NOT respect her choice of a subtly embroidered blouse styled with a form-fitted pencil skirt and black leggings?
The Christian Louboutin pumps, leather purse, dark shades, and slender necktie only added to her elegance.
