Every year since 1901 the Nobel Prize has been awarded for achievements in physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature and for peace. The Nobel Prize is an international award administered by the Nobel Foundation in Stockholm, Sweden. In 1968, Sveriges Riksbank established The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, founder of the Nobel Prize. Each prize consists of a medal, personal diploma, and a cash award.

From 1910 to 2010, 840 people have been awarded the Nobel Prize. Depending on how you define who is Jewish and who is a prize winner, you will get different counts of how many of those winners are Jewish. The proportion of Jewish winners is far higher than the proportion in the general population.
