Student or Learner
The following in red is confusing.
You don't want to ignore this rare social opportunity to interact and meet your requirements so you have the best shot at getting the grant. Put into questions, your main requirements are:
* Who are the decision makers?
* Where are their favorite places/types of places for giving grants?
* What programs/types of programs do they think deserve their grants?
Does this mean "What are some physical places where they like to give grants?" It sounds strange. What is it that I'm misunderstanding?
That depends on the granting organizations. Some favor particular universities; some favor particular departments/areas of study. The piece is telling the reader to do some research on the history of those who are providing the grants.
