One either makes a request (noun) for something or request (verb) something.

He made a request for more soldiers.

He requested me to help him.

(Times-Chambers Learners' Dictionary)

Hence, when used as a noun, 'request' can be followed by 'for'. But when used as a verb, 'request' does not require 'for'.
