In 2021 Ugne was supported by the Henry Wood Accommodation Trust and in 2023 Ugne received Harrison-Frank Family Foundation Award. Honorary conductor of the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra, Professor Juozas Domarkas has said about Ugnė: “She is an exceptionally gifted and serious young artist with excellent natural technical and emotional features, and most importantly, a serious attitude towards subject-matter of music she is performing, as well as the original idea of the composer, what is rarely representative for musicians of young age.” From 2012–2018, Ugnė was supported by Mstislav Rostropovich Foundation.
