The charity said it, and others, are having to work doubly hard to raise vital funds for important causes.
Cool Earth only spends 10 per cent of donations on administration and governance, so the internship scheme provided an opportunity for an extra pair of hands at a crucial time.
Jemma Woodman, of Cool Earth, said: "It is important that as a local employer we nurture and tap into the huge amount of talent that our universities are producing, before young people feel the pressure to leave the region in search of opportunities elsewhere.
"Stephen is an asset to the team and the internship has meant Cool Earth is able to take on another member of staff."
Anna Kiernan, from University College Falmouth, said: "We are thrilled, although not surprised, that Stephen has won a highly competitive placement at Cool Earth.
"Despite reports that around 70 applicants are competing for one vacancy in an enormously challenging market, it is my view that ambitious well-trained graduates will still do well."
