Development of the Balzan Prizes
According to its statutes, the Foundation Board of the Balzan Foundation "Prize" determines the categories, the number, and the amount of the Balzan Prizes. Depending on the financial resources that are available, the number of prizes each year can be limited to two, or even only one.

Based on the amounts that the Balzan Foundation "Fund" could make available, the Balzan Foundation "Prize" has awarded the following Balzan Prizes:

1979 – 1987: CHF 750,000 = 3 prizes of CHF 250,000
1988 – 1990: CHF 900,000 = 3 prizes of CHF 300,000
1991 – 1995: CHF 1,050,000 = 3 prizes of CHF 350,000
1996 – 1998: CHF 1,500,000 = 3 prizes of CHF 500,000
1999 – 2000: CHF 2,000,000 = 4 prizes of CHF 500,000
2001 – 2010: CHF 4,000,000 = 4 prizes of CHF 1,000,000 (*)
from 2011 CHF 3,000,000 = 4 prizes of CHF 750,000 (*)

(*) Half of the amount to be used for research projects nominated by the Prize Winner

The amounts of the six prizes awarded since 1979 for Humanity, Peace and Brotherhood Among Peoples were each double the amounts of the other prizes. Since 2014 it amounts to one million Swiss francs.
