From your link, click the "Study" tab, Jump to "Authorized Access" and follow the "Data access provided by:" link. You will be redirected to the following page, that has all instructions on how and who can apply:

The details for that project are here:

If you want access to controlled-access data (genotypes, reads/bam files), then you will need to formally request access through dbGaP.

Thanks. I guess the problem I met is mainly about I could not figure out how to formally request access, should I request through dbGaP's website or gtexportal main page?
