Only three sitting presidents have ever been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and one after he was president, but after many more years of, you know,

sitting U.S. presidents:
Theodore Roosevelt: Roosevelt, who was in office from 1901-09, was awarded the prize in 1906 "for his successful mediation to end the Russo-Japanese
war and for his interest in arbitration, having provided the Hague arbitration court with its very first case."
Woodrow Wilson: Wilson, who was in office from 1913-21, was awarded the prize in 1919 for founding the League of Nations, the predecessor to the
Barack Obama: Obama, who began his term in 2009, was awarded the prize just months later "for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international
diplomacy and cooperation between peoples."
The prize has also gone to one former U.S. president:
Jimmy Carter: Carter, who served one term from 1977-1981, was awarded the prize in 2002 "for his decades of untiring effort to find peaceful
solutions to international conflicts, to advance democracy and human rights, and to promote economic and social development."
