HUNTINGTON -- Zach Hunter from the Marshall Thundering Herd men's soccer team was a recipient of a Conference USA postgraduate scholarship.

C-USA awarded the $4,000 scholarships to 12 student-athletes. The Jim Castaneda Postgraduate Scholarship Award is named for a man who served Rice University for 46 years as an educator, coach and faculty athletics representative before his death in 2008.

The awards are selected by C-USA faculty athletics representatives.

Hunter, a native of Marietta, Ga., has applied to the Marshall School of Medicine, Georgia Regents University, University of Oregon and Emory University to continue his education following December graduation.

The Marshall midfielder was on the 2012 C-USA All-Academic team and a repeat selection on the C-USA Commissioner's Honor Roll. He has a 3.68 GPA as a chemistry and applied math major.

He also received the 2013 Cam Henderson Scholarship and was granted the NASA West Virginia Space Grant Consortium Research Fellowship.
