EPIC Internship Program, Summer 2023
The Ehime Prefectural International Center (EPIC) Internship Program was established to foster friendship and understanding after the Ehime-maru tragedy on Feb. 9, 2001 when the American submarine U.S.S. Greeneville collided into the Japanese fishery-high school training vessel, Ehime-maru. Nine of the thirty-five people on board were killed, including four high school students from the Uwajima Fisheries School. The accident caused a rift between Japan and the U.S. Many people from both countries worked collaboratively on a number of projects and exchanges to repair this relationship. The EPIC Internship Program is one of these programs.
After a hiatus of three years (2020, 2021, and 2022) due to the COVID pandemic, the internship program will resume in summer 2023.
