Education Assistance


The Education Board was formed in 2006 to encourage City of Moberly employees to undertake education programs to improve or maintain job performance, enhance potential for advancement as a result of identified career goals, and selectively augment personal and professional development.

The City reimburses up to a set level of expenses incurred by any employee who has successfully completed an approved course of instruction. Successful completion of a course means a grade of “B” or better for undergraduate courses, and a grade of “A” or better for graduate courses.

How Do I Apply?

In order to apply for education assistance, you must do the following:

  • Fill out the Application Form (PDF)

  • Attach a one page essay with the application explaining how the City of Moberly will benefit by furthering your education and how it relates to your job at this time
  • Turn in all paperwork to the Personnel Office 45 days prior to starting school semester / trimester
  • The Education Board will then review the applications received and will make the final decision
  • Applicants will be notified by letter whether or not they have been accepted
