LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- The University of Kansas says 149 employees have expressed interest in a buyout offer.

The university offered buyouts last month to 655 of its nearly 4,800 employees in Lawrence and Overland Park.

Spokesman Gavin Young says about a quarter of those who applied for buyouts were faculty. He says another quarter were unclassified staff and about half were university support staff.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/JxbuWU ) those who are approved for the program will receive a lump-sum payment equal to one year's salary, up to a maximum of $100,000.

University deans and vice provosts will review the applications and determine whether to approve them by June 1.
