NCSSM Counseling Services is proud to present David R. Gelinas. Referred to by many as the “guru” of financial aid, David Gelinas has been active in the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators and its regional chapters throughout his career, with twenty- years as Director of Financial Aid at The University of the South. He regularly makes presentations at conferences, has led committees, and served as chair of the national organization for 2005-06. The group honored him with its Distinguished Service Award in 2006. David has put two of his own children through this process so he knows it in practice as well as in theory!
