Ramesh and his wife Sudha have been involved in several philanthropic projects and believe strongly in giving back to the community and supporting environmental causes. This scholarship was established by Ramesh to honor his father Mr. K.G. Venkataraman who hails from Palakkad in Kerala and has lived in Bombay for the most part of his life. He worked for Standard Chartered Bank for the most part of his career. He was a constant source of encouragement for Ramesh during his childhood and instilled in him the sense of discipline and determination to succeed in every endeavor.
